When to take the next career step 

Changing your job may sound like a daunting process, but we believe that changing jobs or career path can enhance your experience and broaden your knowledge and skills.

If you're not feeling satisfied in your current job or you're simply after a change in your career, then it might be time you took the first step. However, don't rush into it. Take the time to explore your options and follow these tips to make your decision easier:

  • Why do you want to change career? Ensure you are changing jobs or careers for the right reasons.
  • Make a career change plan. Know where you are taking that next step and be aware of the work that may be involved.
  • Recognise your current skills that are transferable. This will give you a head start when searching for your new position.
  • Explore the job market and your options. Think broadly about the potential opportunities rather than limiting yourself to similar careers or jobs because you may end up doing the same thing, just in a different place.
  • Think ahead when looking for the right role. Consider whether there is room for growth. Will there be additional training?

Taking the first step towards a new career 

With the economy still recovering, the only way to land your dream new job is by being proactive, showing enthusiasm and persistence. 

Networking and meeting new people will be vital to lead to potential work. Plus meeting people who are happy and successful in their chosen career could further increase your motivation to make that big move.
