In our modern work landscape, there has been an increasing number of people experimenting in their career and jumping from job to job in search for the right job for them.
If you’re one of these people looking for a new career, whether that be in the same organisation or in a completely different field, here are some tips to make sure that you have a successful career change.
- Figure out why you want a new career.
Asking yourself why you didn’t like your last job and why you’re looking for a new role will clarify what you’re looking for in your next role. This will help you avoid entering a role too similar to your last job and repeating the same cycle.
- What field would you like to join?
Make sure you have the ‘what’ questions clear in your mind; what type of role are you looking for? What field of work would you like to join? The answers to these questions make a broad job search a whole lot easier.
- Get the right qualifications.
Gaining a new role in potentially a different field means new skills and new qualifications. Without the right skills and qualifications, it’s really hard to have a successful job switch. Degrees or diplomas are really valuable to new employers, and can make landing a job much simpler. If you’re not looking to head back to uni, a diploma is perfect to quickly and simply gain the right qualifications for your new role.
