If you are looking to change careers but have no idea what to do next, you are probably one of many career-switchers going about it back to front.
Here is how your typical career search might look.
You want a new career, so you go onto a job site.
There are two questions you are faced with straight away on the filters:
WHAT do you want to do?
WHERE are you looking?
You don’t know what you want to do. That is the problem. You cannot use the filter on the job search site.
Instead, you are trying to find your next career path based on how close a job is to your house!!!
It is the only filter you can use, along with salary.
Is it little wonder you feel completely overwhelmed as you scroll through jobs you don’t really understand?
Is it any surprise that you are no clearer on how to change your career path when you are trying to base it on WHERE and SALARY?
This is back to front.
You cannot use job sites effectively until you know WHAT you want to do.
When you know precisely which new career path will make you happy and be right for you, you’ll be able to confidently and productively progress.
You will be able to search for and find your perfect role.
This is the right way around.
This is clarity, confidence in decision-making, building a new path that aligns with what you want from your life.
Anyone can find a job.
But that is not what you are really looking for, is it?
You want the RIGHT job.
You cannot confidently find your new career path back to front.
To find it, you need to KNOW for sure WHAT job will be right for you and make you happy.
And to do that, you need to explore your inner drivers to see what roles will align with who you are.
