Change happens whether you like it or not
The only aspect of change that you can control is to be well prepare for it...the rest is outside your world.
Statistics show that most people will have up to six career changes and possibly seventeen jobs throughout their working life, so it is not uncommon. What is common is for people to get it wrong and settle for something much less in career advancement and remuneration.
The term "career change" is a short and simple two word phrase that does not adequately reflect the complexity and difficulty involved in effectively changing your career.
Career change is about getting a "good outcome" not simply finding a new job...people often confuse the two. It’s about moving into a completely new sector or occupation and certainly involves challenging your personal comfort zone.
Professional assessment and intensive research are required to identify your current transferable skills, or to develop a strategy to gain the necessary skills and additional qualifications.
Identifying companies and sectors that have growth is also critical to a person's long term career prospects.
As previously stated change beyond your control!
Change can be a highly rewarding and transforming journey or problematic...it all depends on how you manage your career change and transition process.
