How to start a new career path?

Business Coaching-How to start a new career path

Sometimes, to improve our quality of life, it is necessary to make big changes to it. Such as saying goodbye to your current career and starting a new career path.

When should you consider changing your career path?

There may be several reasons for such a decision. Your current job has been boring for a long time, you feel that you are not developing at all, and the obligations imposed on you have little to do with your education and skills. Or maybe you feel burnout and the imbalance between private life and work has a negative impact on your psyche?

These are definitely signals that cannot be ignored. For a career change, however, they can also be pushed by other, more prosaic reasons - a company on the verge of collapse, problems with the boss, unpleasant colleagues.

If the negative feelings far outweigh the positives, then it's worth it to think about starting such a "revolution" in life.

Sometimes revolutions at work are a necessity

Exactly - "revolution". It goes without saying that changing your career path is not a simple decision. This is why it is so difficult to take up. The enormous amount of work that must be done often discourages us from taking action.

Another reason is age - many people think they are too old for such a change. However, you don't have to treat your career change as something that will turn your life upside down in no time. This can be a change over time that you prepare for at a leisurely pace.

It may be helpful to list the actions you need to take:

- Think about your strengths and how to present them favorably in your CV.

- Think about which professions you find interesting and ask your friends about them.

Take a look at the activities of companies offering such positions.

- If you are concerned that you are lacking skills, you can enroll in an online course. This way, you will gain some knowledge and not apply for a completely new position with zero preparation. Also, use the information posted on industry portals.

Schedule these actions in time, but don't set a hard deadline for your "revolution" - it would be a simple recipe for failure.
