Why People Don’t Change Careers

woman phoningIn my last blog, I listed the reasons why people don’t change careers. Too much time, too much money, and too much fear seem to be the top three reasons why people don’t change careers.

Here are 3 tips to make that career change much easier:

Too Much Time

Yes, when you change careers, extra training may be involved and that may have to be on your own time. Look into options such as online classes that are self-paced or classes that can be taken on a weekend. You can always tape favorite TV programs or reschedule certain activities.

Too Much Money

The job of your dreams may pay a lot less money, so plan ahead. Before you change careers, save some money out of each paycheck for an emergency fund when finances get tight. Cut costs further by curtailing eating out, new large purchases, or postponing that dream vacation.

Too Much Fear

Ease in slowly to your new career. Ask if you can spend a day shadowing a person who does a similar job. If possible, start part-time while keeping your old job. Easing in slowly will help lessen the fear of a career change.

The dream of starting a new career doesn’t mean that it will always be easy, but by following these 3 tips, you’ll be on to your new life in no time.
