Preparing For A Second Career

12

If someone thinks that they are happy with their career, then it is a good thing. But you can shine in your next career too if you believe that’s the best solution for you.

Assessing the interest

Before deciding to switch or maintain both careers, you need to think deeply about the next step in your life. You might have a vague plan about what you are good at and what you want to do with it.

Identify the transferable skills

These are those skills that you learn during the current profession you have right now. They can be soft or hard skills. But always try to incorporate them into the new career.

Get expert advice

If you have any doubts about your planning, ask for help. Don’t hesitate to  take the help of a professional who has gone through this path. It is ok to make mistakes and take help from others before messing up big time.

Prepare the new skills

Try to gain as many new skills as possible for the new career. This will help you in your professional life. Also, take classes or other important lessons if you think you need them.
