Changing career paths can be hard work

Posted on August 18, 2020 at 1:46 pm

When we are younger, it is often drilled into us that we need to know what we want to do when we are older. From the age of when you have to choose your GCSE subjects you may already be limiting your choices as certain careers require you to have very specific qualifications.

It can be hard to try and change your career choice once you have already entered the world of employment especially if you have a number of financial commitments that you need to uphold.

Teaching is one career that has changed over the years and more and more of them are leaving the profession within a few years of starting.

If you are sure that a career move is right for you then you need to assess whether you need to do any additional training or qualifications. When attending an interview, you may find that you are up against people that already have experience or qualifications in that sector so the more you can do to further yourself the better. Finding jobs that are similar to what you already do may help your chances of landing them, but you need to be sure that it is a move in to the career you think you will be happy in otherwise you will be doing it all again in the near future.
