How to Switch Careers After Years of

Working

It’s much easier than people might realize to get stuck in a job that doesn’t do anything for you. Everyone has bills to pay and other expenses that they need an income for, which is why the financial security of a stable job is so appealing. However, even if your current role allows you to live comfortably, if you’re waking up every morning dreading work and contemplating calling in sick, or just go on autopilot in the office because the job is so mundane, you might want to think about changing direction. It’s important to do something that you enjoy, at the very least, a job that will challenge you and help you grow. If you think you’d like to switch career after years at a dead-end job, here are some steps you’ll need to take. Go Back to School This might not be relevant to everybody, but if you are interested in a career in a field that requires candidates to have a degree or some other qualification that you don’t have, this will be necessary. This might be something that puts you off making a switch, but don’t let that happen. You can earn a college degree online, which is a much more flexible approach to learning that you can fit around your job. Work Experience You might want to consider looking at getting an internship or volunteering some of your time to gain some insight into the role you’re interested in pursuing. This is a good early step to take if you do want to change careers because it will give you a better idea of what to expect and if the job is truly right for you. You might have to use some of your annual leave from your current role to do this or take some unpaid time off work, but it’s worth it to figure out if your idea of a dream career will work for you. Transferable Skills Sometimes the reason people are put off from switching careers is that they believe that they don’t have the right skill set to move into their ideal job. Although you will likely need to get some qualifications or training to boost your skills, you will already have some that are transferable to any kind of role. Things like strong organization, communication, reliability, creative problem solving, and so on are things that can be useful in any role. Utilize these to help you make your transition into another career path a bit easier. Consider Your Finances Another thing you’ll need to be mindful of when switching careers is that you’ll have to work from the bottom up again. This is likely to result in reduced pay, depending on what your current role is. Make sure that you are in a position to accept a lower income each month without having to worry about covering your essentials and a little extra for general living. Careers Advisor If you know that you want to change careers but you aren’t sure what path you want to follow, speaking to a careers advisor might help you. They can give you some suggestions on careers that will suit you based on your interests, skills, qualifications, and personality traits. It is smart to do this as you might not have considered certain career options that would be perfect for you. Switching career paths can be scary, but if you’re unhappy in your current role, you owe it to yourself to try and find a job that will make you happy to get out of bed each morning. Use these tips to help you make the change.
