Changing careers is a decision many people make. The decision to change careers should not be an impulsive one, but
one that has been thought out. You should try to learn as much as you can about
the new career you are looking to enter and what is driving your desire.
It’s also important to consider the changes that will come with the new career,
and think about whether you need further education.
Changing careers can mean a change in pay, hours worked, and
the type of people you work with. Getting as much information as possible upfront
can make your decision to change careers more satisfying and lead to a smoother
transition into your new field. If you know anyone in your personal or
professional networks who works in the field you hope to enter, reach out to him
or her. Ask what the job is like and what opportunities exist in the field.
Find out about the hours and work environments of the career
you would like to enter. Ideally, try to find some work or volunteer
opportunities in the area so you can see firsthand what the new field is like.
In addition to learning about the new field and deciding
whether you would like it, it is important to know whether you will have to go back to school.
Some people are able to transition into certain fields without having to go
back to school; however, fields such as teaching may require certain certifications and education.
One blog post illustrates one person’s experience with
changing careers and the steps she took before diving into a new career. The
blogger studied something completely different from what she had wanted to
study most of her life. The blog post offers an example of what to consider
when deciding to change careers and steps to take before making the change. The
blogger also describes how she volunteered in the field she was looking to
transition into. Before making the leap into teaching,
she found a volunteering opportunity working with children on the weekends. Making the decision to change careers is one
step, but before moving forward it helps to get some experience in the new
field to make sure it is a change you want to make.
