Career Change - A Roadmap Guide

Posted by Direct Line Group at 04:03 PM

Thinking about changing your career after another miserable day at work? Our handy infographic will help you decide if now’s the time.

For many people, the dream of quitting work and starting a new professional journey simply comes and goes without a trace. They decide, for example, that the risks are too great, the costs of retraining are prohibitive, or that they’re too close to retirement to make a career change worth the effort.

Others cannot dismiss the attractions of changing careers so easily. They’re already at the stage of fantasising about their final day and typing out career change ideas while they should be working – from there it’s just a question of when and how rather than if.

We’ve put this Career Change Roadmap together to help you make this life-changing decision, wherever you are in your career.

So if it feels like your precious weekends are flying by in less time than it takes for that torturous office clock to manage a single tick, it’s time to ask yourself some big questions about your career.

Nobody but you can decide whether you should change your career. But we can suggest that you think carefully before settling on a plan of action.

If you do decide on changing your career, give yourself the best possible chance of success by researching your options carefully and objectively.

And whatever you decide, good luck!
