Do You Need A New Job Or A New Career?

There are many reasons that you may want to have a new career. Your old career may go by the wayside because of more recent computer programs. You may be looking for a better work-life balance. And it may be that you have changed your circumstances, such as a recent move.

AI tells us many different reasons for seeking a new career. Yet, the number one reason for wanting this is a lack of fulfillment. It turns out that people are just not enjoying what they’re doing at their current job. I understand. I have left jobs for the same reason and moved on to jobs that gave me more fulfillment.

I must caution that there is a lot of planning and forethought to go into a successful move from one job to another. That is what we’re going to be studying. Use your head; do not jump into something without weighing all the pros and cons first.

Changing jobs or careers could be the best thing that ever happened to Us. Yet changing jobs or careers without the correct preparation or forethought could be one of the worst. Where is thought many people have told me before, “look before you leap.”

Tomorrow we will look at some of the things you need to consider when changing employment.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
