Take Control of Your Career

William Frierson of CollegeRecruiter.comIf you are not satisfied with your current job, it may be time to consider a change.  However, not necessarily changing jobs within the same career field, but moving to a different one altogether.  While you might be hesitant at first to do so, making a career change could be what you need not only for success in the workplace, but your happiness.  Here are some tips to help you make a career transition:

Establish your priorities– Decide what things are most important to you in a career (ex.-money, work/life balance, stability, etc.).

Pinpoint your passions– Think about any particular interests or hobbies you have, or try something new; you never know what ability you may possess.  Then, do some research to learn about potential job opportunities, based on your interests or hobbies.

Apply your talents to a new target– Find out where your passion can make a difference.  If there is a need to be filled and other people know about your talent, you could create opportunities for yourself.

For other career transition tips, see the source below.

What’s the point of continuing to work in a career field that makes you unhappy?  If you believe there is something better for you, then take control of your career, and find your happiness.
