Thinking about making a career change? Feeling like you’re trapped in a job that you hate is a sure fire way to get unmotivated and can even have serious health implications such as weight gain, depression and lowering your immune system.
Changing your career is a big step and often needs careful thought before you take the leap, but it is possible to find a job you love without going through any more stress:
Changing your career might bring you happiness, but you might not be on the same pay bracket that you were in your current career. You need to know exactly how much money you need so that you don’t get yourself into serious debt. If you are going to fall short then you need to make sure you live within your means, and save as much as you can so that you have enough to see you through to when you expect your pay to go up.
Don’t become obsolete
Always use your time to preserve and advance your skills, including the skills you need for your current work. Whilst you might need a whole new skill set for your new career, it’s a good idea to not lose your current skills core, you may need it in the future. Also, really find out what you need to know for your new career. By getting your new skill level up you have a greater chance of securing work.
Don’t feel like you need to make any rash decisions, no matter how much you dislike your current job. It’s always better to prepare and find new work whilst you are still earning. Try meeting people who are working in your destined career already to get some advice. Ask about what skills you need, what the day to day job is like and how to break into the industry.
