Best Practice for Career Transitioning
Here is our best practice advice to get you started on your journey to a new career.
Know your Abilities
Start by conducting an honest assessment of your current abilities.
Having a clear picture of what you are interested in and where your strengths lie will help you to think of industries and roles in which you can best apply yourself. It will also help you to discover areas in which you may require upskilling.
Research Potential Opportunities and Begin Networking
Now that you have a clear idea of the types of roles you wish to pursue, it is time to begin researching.
It is imperative to gain a thorough comprehension of the tasks and responsibilities involved in potential roles, as well as the skills and competencies required. Additionally, you should familiarise yourself with the compensation and opportunities for career progression that is typically on offer.
A great way to achieve this is to expand your professional network and engage in discussions with people already working in your chosen field. Career fairs, networking events, and of course, LinkedIn, are brilliant avenues for broadening your understanding of an industry and career path.
We mentioned earlier that you may need to upskill to boost your chances of landing a role in your desired field.
Consider enrolling in classes and obtaining certifications to bolster your resume. Online platforms such as Udemy and LinkedIn Learning are perfect places to get started.
Seek Trusted Advice
Changing career paths is a major life decision that can impact many aspects of both your personal and professional life. Therefore, we recommend getting to know a recruiter or two that you can trust or enlisting the help of a professional career coach.
A trusted advisor can offer the insights and advice you need to make confident and informed decisions regarding your career change. They also often possess connections within the industry or insider knowledge of employment opportunities.
Trust the Process
The career transitioning process is often filled with ups and downs. It takes time and energy from perfecting your CV, to actively networking and attending interviews.
Each step of the journey will help you to gain confidence, insights, and a deeper awareness of yourself and the market place. Ask for constructive feedback after every interview, view each setback as an opportunity to learn, practice patience, and trust the process.
