Looking for A Career Change?
You've come to the right place!
If you are looking to make a career change, then the How To Change Careers website is designed just for you. It will help you work out what you want to do and how to make it happen.
There are plenty of careers websites out there which focus on
helping you find job vacancies and improve your CV, but the comments I
hear most often from my clients are...
'I am not happy in this job, but I just don’t know what else
I want to do.'
'I know I want to do something different, but I haven't got a clue about how to go about it.'
So what's to be done?
The good news is that this website will put the tools into your hands to answer those questions.
But you need to be ready to do your bit.
You need to be willing to take your time and put in some thought and effort into the exercises. If you do, then this website will help you sort out how to get the career change you want.
How will this site help you?
What this site does is to take you through a step by step, carefully designed self assessment process that will help you to really take stock of:
- who you are,
- where you are and
- what you would really like to do with your career.
This is not something that can be done at one sitting! Remember that successful career change takes time.
You owe it to yourself to take that time to explore and discover as much as possible about yourself. You need to match that with research about the opportunities that are out there for you to take advantage of.
Once you have done that, you can pull all the ideas and information together and confidently identify the best career change options for you at this stage in your life.
And it doesn't stop there.
There is help for you in researching your career ideas so that you don't dive into a new career without finding out as much as possible about it.
There is support for you when you are having doubts.
- Are you worried about the money side of things?

And then on a practical note, you can read about
