I have been working as a software engineer/developer since last 3 years in India. The work has become monotonous and I'm really looking for a career change but I'm stuck as I'm not very sure about the next job I should try for.

Feeling Stuck
by: Cherry

I have been working as a software engineer/developer since last 3 years in India. The work has become monotonous and I?m really looking for a career change but I?m stuck as I?m not very sure about the next job I should try for.

Start by looking at what you have done with your career so far. What skills, strengths and abilities have you developed from the various jobs you have done? What are the achievements you are proud of? What have you gained from your experience of work so far? Make a list of all these.

Then ask yourself what it is about your current work that you are finding monotonous. What is it that is causing you frustration? What would you rather be doing? If you could add some new elements to your job to make it more interesting, what would they be?

Then build up a picture of your ideal job that would allow you to use the skills and strengths you have already and that would incorporate the things that are missing from your current role.

You will find a lot of help on how to do this elsewhere on this website. Take a look at
the Where Am I section http://www.how-to-change-careers.com/how-to-change-career.html and the Who Am I section http://www.how-to-change-careers.com/career-change-assessment.html to get you started.
