In the volatile and ever changing work force of today, people are changing careers more often than ever before in history. If you are thinking of doing that , here are some important things to make sure you don?t do?
Don't worry if you feel a bit insecure or unsure about making a career change; these feelings are normal.
Don't rush into a new career field because you are dissatisfied or disillusioned with your current job, boss, company, or career field.
Don't limit yourself to similar careers or jobs when making a career change; look for careers that take advantage of both your skills and your interests.
Don't forget to take advantage of the career and alumni offices from your previous educational experiences as well as your current school (if you are going back for additional education or training).
Don't go it alone; do find a mentor. Changing careers is challenging, and you really need to have someone who can help motivate you and keep you focused on your goal when you get discouraged.
