Over Fifty Career Change
A good friend in tough times!
The words 'career change' easily roll off the tongue, from then on it becomes very complex...particularly once you pass the "magic fifty".
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 current transferable skills, or to develop a strategy to gain the necessary skills and additional qualifications.
Identifying companies that are openly receptive to older workers is also a critical consideration.
As previously stated career change for older workers is a complex process to get right and may require a number of steps over a period of time to properly finalise. Specialised career and strategy planning to effectively manage the process is the key to a successful outcome.
It can be a highly rewarding life-transforming journey or a disaster...it all depends on how you manage your career change and transition process.
