Identifying Your Career Needs
To start with, one needs to identify the reasons as to why one is changing their career. It is important to establish
what one is running from in the present job or the things that are attracting you a new job or career. Ideally you should want to move to that new career and the challenge and excitement it will bring. Instead of running away from something in the current job. Basically it is something that one admires in the other job that will help make that new break a success. With too many negative attributes about the other job in mind, one might tend to be disillusioned and at times end up with the same problems in the next job as in the previous job. So careful consideration is required on what make a new career step important.
Have a Vision of Where You Want to Be
The next thing to consider in order to do the job that one likes
is being able to have a vision and a goal that
is self driven. In this case, one needs to determine their working schedule, the salary they will be comfortable working with, appropriate time to commute to job and the position that one feels suited to working at. In addition, it is also important that one has in mind the managerial levels that they intend to be reporting to. Or rather, one should be able to analyse themselves and be able to establish if they want to be entrepreneurs or they want to continue being employed and pursue career progression..
The other important thing to consider doing is to reconnect with one’s interests ,abilities and qualifications. One needs to keep focused on the things that attracts them to any new job. When one loses their focus, it is possible that old problems arise ,similar to their former job.
So after reconnecting with one’s interests, it is important that they also reconnect with their values. Generally, one’s values go together with their interests. Any new job move should be for the right reasons. And any job that interests you will be a fantastic starting point for your new move.
