career change

Want ads in classified section of newspaper

In the present economic situation, more and more people people are forced to take any kind of work that pays, rather than what they would like to do.

Some still think about changing professions, just because they feel like a change from the field they currently work in, however the chance to change, especially if you are in work is not as tempting today as it once may have been. My mother back in the 60’s and 70’s used to just hand in her resignation and have a bit of a break if she fancied looking for something else. For my father, although the reason for the changewas always motivated by more money, he did indeed change jobs every few years .

Changing careers has advantages and disadvantages.On one hand there is the thought of maybe being able to do the job you really want to do, that dream job. However, there can be many obstacles to getting into a job that is a more current , modern career than what you did before and you do not really have the skills or background for it. This is one of the effects of the change through the years from an industrial economy to a technology based one. The skills required are different. However, if you are adaptable, you possibly can make some sort of transition from the old job to some new one.

A good idea when starting out on the process of changing or looking for a new job is to identify and write down your skills. Google Identify your skills and you will find lots of sites to help you do this, with advice and skills tests.

Then next work out what sort of job you would like to have. Of course for many these days, facing welfare benefit cuts, perhaps being disabled and yet forced by welfare reform to claim Jobseekers Allowance and look for a job, or have your benefits sanctioned, this may not be about what sort of job you fancy , but anything that you can do.

Again, Google, ‘What job can I do’ and you will find lots of guidance and direction that may be useful. There you will also find ‘what job can i do from home and make money’
