Time to figure out what you really want

Reprinted courtesy of TheCareerNews.com
SCOTTSDALE, AZ — Take time out to figure out what you want. Stepping into unfamiliar territory, going back to school, or learning to live on less income can present challenges. Start with careful thought, preparation, planning and research. You have to know where you want to go along with knowing where you want to leave. Don’t allow yourself to be driven by a vague sense to change jobs just for the sake of change.


Don’t put the job hunting process in motion, until you are able to write out the valid reasons that you want to move to a new job and be specific about what you want that job to be. Understand that you are contemplating a serious and difficult move, even under the best of circumstances. There is always some risk to your current situation when you start looking around.
What will your present employer think, if the word gets around that you are looking for better job opportunities. Determine that you have the courage to live with the uncertainties of making a change. Survey the situation. Make sure that there is a market for the skills that you have.
