Change is part of life. There are those who have the job of their dreams; there are those who dream of a different job opportunity and there are even those who, although they used to love the work they had, now look for something different. Do you identify?
Do not worry. Reinventing oneself is part of the nature of people. Keep in mind that it is never too late to start a new work path. But how to realize where to go and what do you want?
- Take note
Take out a notebook and make a list of your skills and things that now attract your attention at work.
Ask yourself: what is it that leads you to look for a change? Do you need to go through educational processes to be able to do what you want? Do you need financing? And finally, the most common but very important question: do you see yourself doing this for the rest of your life?
Remember that writing is a great tool to help you reach your goals. So to get to know you better and realize where your new course is going, start there.
- Educate yourself and find out
You already know what you want to do with your work life. Now, train yourself to achieve it. Find courses, diplomas, or masters if that is what you would like. You can even find several online courses to develop all the necessary skills.
- Talk with friends and acquaintances
Surely you have a friend, or friend of a friend, who knows the sector you would like to enter. Talk with him to talk to you about the knowledge you need to have and introduce you to the necessary contacts.
- Send your CV
Do not be afraid to knock on the doors of a new place. Send your resume to several different places. Do not worry if the first attempts do not receive an answer, the joke is to be very persistent.
