Shifting your career path
Keen to embark on a new career? Whether you want to change role functions or move to a new industry, there’s a lot to consider. So, before handing in your notice it can be useful to explore the steps you can make towards a career transition while you’re in your current role.
Volunteering and temping
You may not be able to join a new organisation at your current level, which may mean a lower salary or the necessity for training.
If you do need extra training/education, unless an organisation is willing to pay for it, you may have to spend money on a course while you’re not working.
You might lose contact with current colleagues; it can be hard work making new friends at a new place of work and it’s time consuming maintaining relationships from current and past organisations.
As a newbie you’ll have to prove your worth to your new employers, even if they can see your past experience on your CV they haven’t witnessed you working first-hand.
- A new organisation might not offer the same progression opportunities that your current one does, make sure to research this first if you have any aspirations for development.
