Is Your Career Ready for a Change?

“Change is the only constant in life.”

So many things around us have changed during the pandemic including the way we shop, socialize, and work. This has also been a time of intense reflection, and many people have been reconsidering their careers. In fact, according to The Washington Post, nearly a third of U.S. workers under the age of 40 have either considered (or executed) a career change over the past year and a half.

For some, the change was not voluntary: lay-offs and cut-backs prompted swift action for financial purposes. For others, taking a step back from normal life at the office gave them an opportunity to ask, “Is this really what I want to do for the rest of my life?” We have been reminded that life is both precious and short, and now might just be the perfect time to take advantage of pursuing new and old dreams.

But where to start? Starting a new career can be scary and uncomfortable. As with many things in life, the answer is with baby steps. For example, if you’re considering going (or returning) to school, rather than plunging into twenty applications right away, start by doing some online research, scheduling a phone consultation with an advisor, etc. If, on the other hand, you know you desire change but don’t know what you want to do yet, you might consider scheduling an appointment with a career consultant or therapist who specializes in life transitions, goal attainment or life coaching. There are also many helpful books and workbooks to help you narrow down what gives you joy, and what types of careers might be available to you in that area. Since November is National Career Development Month, why not take a baby step today?
