How do I change careers if I've been in this field for years?

Want a Change?

Sometimes after working for a while in one career, the itch to branch out to new areas strikes. What kinds of things can a career-changing job seeker look to do? What strategies should be implemented?

1. Look at your transferable skills. What do you do now, that could be done in another vocation? Do you have management skill? Teaching skills?
2. What other type of work appeals to you? Do some career exploration. Ask questions.
3. Where are the opportunities that appeal to you? Are you willing to relocate if necessary?

Making a mid-career change can be accomplished with planning, leg-work, and desire.
