Career Change Action Steps and Tips

  • When planning a career change, it is important that you first evaluate your job satisfaction in your current employment. This process will ensure it is time to look for a new career and not just undergoing a particular phase or rut in your life, where a rest or a vacation will suffice to get you back on track.
  • Evaluate your job interests as well as your skills through self-help exercises so you will know what to look for in your perfect job. Take time to review your previous employment records including the positive contributions you made to your current career so you can efficiently identify the right skills you will need to develop.

Evaluate Suitable Career Options

  • Analyze career alternatives by talking about your working skills and core values with other people like your friends, your family, or your coach. Visiting physical or online libraries for professional information can also help you obtain valuable career advice. Think about performing an initial comparative assessment of various fields to identify a short list of career targets to research.
  • Gain as much information about possible careers you are interested in transitioning into by reading about the job and qualifications necessary. If you think you are qualified, try to uncover some contacts in your network of friends and colleagues that can help you out with your job search.
  • It is best to explore all career alternatives that coincide with your personal skills and core values. You can also observe other professionals in a particular sector. Extensive research will help you gain a first-hand opinion about whether or not you will be successful in a line of work and if you should pursue it.

By considering various alternative options in every industry for which you are qualified to work can help you decide whether it is time for you to change your career.

If you are not sure about whether you should leave your current employer for employment elsewhere, consider asking your superiors to transfer you to another department with slightly different job responsibilities to give you a change of pace. Consider gaining a new endorsement or teaching area to give you a change of pace – you may just be in a bit of a rut.
