Changing career is always going to be difficult. There are some ways in which you can make the transition more easily, reducing your stress and leading to better outcomes. Here is some advice:
- Think carefully before making a career change. It is going to be a stressful time and interviews and applications take a long time. Don’t apply for jobs that you don’t really want.
- Plan your career progress. Look into working for companies and organisations where you can be happy for the foreseeable future.
- Make sure you check your contract thoroughly. Unanswered questions now could lead to problems in the future. Be clear on your contract and understand it fully.
- Talk to a careers adviser. It’s an expensive service but it can help you reach your goals and achieve more. They can help you plan your career and make the right career move decisions to take the pressure off you.
