Career Change – Career Progression


‘Not all those who wander are lost’ Tolkein

Thinking of changing career but want to be sure of making the right choice. Do these questions look familiar to you?

  • What level or degree of change do you want?
  • What career options are open to you?
  • Is age a factor if I decide to change?
  • What are my transferable skills and where can I best use them? How can I establish what my priorities are and strike a balance between work and life?
  • What careers or sectors would be right for me?
  • How do I set about moving into an entirely new field?
  • What are my educational options?
  • Will I have to take a cut in salary or take a step back or sideways in my career?
  • I’m retiring from full time work and I’d like to try something new? Am I being realistic?
