How to Bag a New Career
January 8, 2018
I’ve only been back at work for a week and I am already in a bit of a slump. I no longer like my job.
It’s time for a change; it’s time to focus on what makes me happy and work towards a career that I actually want to be in.
We’re in 2018 now, so this is the perfect opportunity for me to make a change!
Confession Time: Does this sound like you?
No need to be embarrassed, we’ve all been there. But how many of us actually put these plans into action?
It may seem like a daunting task, but we’ve got the best tips on how to bag yourself a new career:
Figure out why you want a new career
This time of year is hard for everyone: the post-Christmas slump. So you need to decipher whether that’s the cause, or whether you have genuinely had enough. If it’s the latter, then figure out what is about your job that you don’t like so you won’t fall into the same mistakes.
Put yourself out there
Be open to new opportunities. Through elimination you will be able to know what you don’t want and narrow the search. Also, services such as career guidance and recruitment agencies will be able to help match you to the type of career you are suited for.
Do some research
Once you have decided which career you are interested in, do some research on the best routes and opportunities that are available. This way you can find out which route works best for you, and get there much quicker!
