many reasons for changing careers. Some have to do with unrealistic
expectations about a career or not having enough information about a career.
Other reasons include life circumstances or not feeling fulfilled in a current
career. Unrealistic expectations about a career can happen for many
reasons. Loving a subject in school and romanticizing the career choices
available after completing a degree can contribute to unrealistic expectations.
To keep expectations realistic, make sure to research as
much as you can about the degree. Speak to others already working in the field
you are looking to enter. Conduct an Internet search and visit sites like the
Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. If you are in college, reach
out to your college's career services center and ask for information. You should also make sure to look for the
latest information, salary, work environment, and trends in the career that you
are preparing for.
You may also encounter life circumstances that require you
to search for higher-paying opportunities. The salary for the career you are
working toward may not be what you expected, or you may live in an area where
the salary is significantly lower than average. If you don’t have financial
obligations other than yourself, you may be satisfied with a lower salary.
Unfortunately, if you are in a situation where you need to make a certain
amount of money, a career change may be appealing. Before making a career
change based on salary, it is still important to make sure to also understand
the new career.
You don’t want to make a change that you will later regret, so take the time to
do your research or ask others working in the field you are looking to enter
about what you should expect.
Whatever the reason, some people find themselves looking for
a change in career. Whether they thought they would be doing something more
meaningful, had unrealistic expectations, or needed to make more money,
information is the key. Here is one blog post where the blogger changed her
career goals after getting married and realizing that to live comfortably she
would need to change her career. She reached out to her mother, who was in the education field,
and asked her for advice. She changed her career to education quickly, but not
before seeking the advice of others in the field. Click here to read her blog post. You may find her perspective on making a career change
