The answer to this question is important to you because you spend the majority of your waking time at work.
So you understand that this question determines how happy or successful you will be for several years or until your next career change
How To Make A Career Change
Let me start by saying that you are going to consider changing your career at least once in your lifetime!
Gone are the days when you worked at one job, employer or career for your lifetime. The reality is that employers will probably not think highly of your skills if you stay at one place for too long!
This is true especially in the Information Technology (IT) industry, where your career diversity works for you and not against you!
So, it is okay to change careers, because you will benefit from gaining a broader perspective or a wider range of skills and your employer will view you as a more resourceful, capable cross-functional knowldege worker.
That being said, changing careers is still not easy. You could get lost in the transition or waste a lot of time chasing rabbit trails of certifications or college degrees only to discover that the trail leads to the door of hands-on experience or skills.
That is why this series is devoted to helping you make a successful career transition. By participating in this online career changers discussion group, you will receive answers to burning career transition questions such as:
- Should I change my career or stick to the one I have always known?
- How do I choose the right career?
- Will I be able to successfully transition my career?
- Is it wise for me to start from scratch in a new career?
- Am I too old or is it to late for me to change my career?
- Is this the right time for me to change careers?
- How should I learn the skills, duties or roles required of me in a new career?
Some of this FREE information will answer whether business analysis, software development, project management, quality assurance or any other career is right for you.
