Learning Center Experience
You aren’t happy with your job and you begin thinking about how you’ve
spent 4+ years to acquire a degree, landed a great job after graduation, and
should now be completely professionally fulfilled and happy. Or maybe that you
have zero experience and understanding when it comes to a specific area such as
technology or biology, so a midlife career in either of these industries is out
of the question. These two assumptions couldn’t be further from the truth. As self-critical individuals, we
can be our worst advocates and advisors. It can be easy to get stuck looking at
things from critical perspectives, almost from a “what would others say”
perspective. But the truth is that your assumptions can be biased, overcritical,
and not necessarily correct.
If you find yourself in a
job that you aren’t happy with, you should consider your options for changing careers,
employers, or jobs. Just because you went down a certain career path doesn’t
mean it was the right one. And, you are better off deciding that you need to
think about changing
paths earlier in the game. Once you have come to terms with the need to change
you can begin to properly review your options and plan. As you are considering
options, think about what you have enjoyed from previous courses or job and
life experiences. And just because you haven’t had a strong foundation in a
subject—let’s say in technology—don’t close the door on becoming a web expert
if a past experience steered you in that direction. Skills and knowledge can be
built and fine-tuned. And employers may appreciate skill sets and experiences
that are transferable to the job regardless of the industry. Critical thinking,
negotiating, and leadership are some examples of skills that employers value.
Such skills can give you a competitive edge.
Experiences in any career journey
can build upon one another. While a job might not turn out to be the right fit
for you, it can still provide you an opportunity to explore another path or to
build and strengthen a skill set you can take with you regardless of the job. Read
a blog post that describes this kind of transition. After graduating and
starting a job in her field, this blogger felt it had a limited future. While
venturing beyond her areas of responsibility in the hopes of making her work more
interesting, she found something she enjoyed doing. She took that experience,
overcame self-doubt, and took the steps needed to transition into a new field.
Is this something you can identify
with? Take a look at this blog post to see how someone overcame her self-doubts
in a career change.
