Time For A Career Change

Time For A Career Change
Copyright © Craig Warren

Did you know that the average person changes their career
six times in their working life? There are many different
reasons why a person would decide to switch careers- they
may be laid off at their current job, a dream job may come
along, people in a committed relationship may find
themselves having to consider new prospects due to a change
in location of the job of the other partner, or someone may
just become plain bored in their current career, to the
point where it feels like there is no point to the day.
Career changes are not a bad thing, but they need to be
planned according to the circumstances of your life, in such
a way that you will still have the funds coming in which you
need to survive.

Most of us will spend our lives hoping for the ideal job,
but this will rarely materialize. The fact is, almost all
jobs have their pitfalls- we may scoff at actors of
musicians who complain about their long workdays or
schedules, pointing to their pay checks, but the fact is
that many jobs that offer lucrative incomes also entail a
lot of dedication and hard work in order to get to the top.
When you are defining your dream job, remember that almost
every job comes with its downside, even if that downside is
only the repetitiveness of the day.

A career change does not necessarily have to entail extensive
retraining. Many people who have lost their jobs through
layoffs or downsizing will find that their skills are still in
demand, and that their experience is very useful in finding a
new career. If you do not feel like retraining, consider a job
with a different company where your skills fit. If you want to
get right out of the corporate area, the odds are good that you
can find a niche for yourself as an independent consultant or
another area in which your expertise will add to your

Some people decide that they in fact do desire a total 360 degree
turn from their current career path. In such circumstances, it is
again best to begin by shopping the skills obtained at your former
job only applied to new markets. You may also want to consider some
retraining through college or university courses. There are many
training courses available online, so people often do not even have
to leave their homes in order to obtain the skills necessary to
their new careers.

Whatever your decision, remember that it is always easier to find
a new job when you are not desperate for one. Take the time to think
through your decisions and applications carefully before severing
ties with your current job; you may be ready for a change, but you
will still have to eat in the meantime! In the event that your company
has been downsized or other circumstance that has led to being laid
off, find out if there are any contingency plans in place for
retraining through the company or through any of the levels of
government. This can provide a good financial buffer for that
in-between time.
