Career changer, why is finding a new job so hard?

Anyone can find a job.

If you ONLY wanted a job, you would have found one by now.

But it’s not what you really want.

You don’t want a job. You have one of those and you don’t like it.

What you want is a job you LOVE.

And that’s a bit different to find.

A normal job search is relatively straight-forward.

If you just want a job, you apply to jobs near you without too much focus or thought.

You simply get a job.

The reason you are finding it so hard is because you don’t want just any job.

To find a job you love is not as straight-forward.

You need to know what job will really suit you.

You need to know how your current skills will be applied to a new job.

You need to have the right mindset and belief that you can change paths.

You need to rebrand yourself to a new career story.

And only then can you start the process of searching for your new role.

It will require more focus and thought.

You will be looking for something specific outside your current field of expertise.

The way to apply may be very different.

The language of your new industry may seem unfamiliar.

And you will need to confidently convince a new employer that you are the best person for the job to be successfully appointed.

Changing career paths is 100% achievable.

But do not expect to approach it as finding another job.

Do you want to approach your career change differently?

Fancy benefiting from the expertise of a professional career coach to guide you?

Maybe you are sick of struggling to find what you are looking for?

Maybe you simply have no idea what it is you want to find?

If this is you, then you’re in the right place.

One message is all it takes to start changing the job-fog into career-clarity.

I first worked with Will whilst I was a junior member of a teaching team. I worked closely with him for around three years and he became a true mentor to me. During this time Will helped encourage me to discover my own leadership style and he mapped out what it takes to be successful. I highly recommend Will for life and career coaching.

Will is a professional, natural leader who manages to make you feel at ease. He manages to be both emphatic and encouraging, whilst also managing to challenge you to find your own answers. Will’s approach is totally non-judgmental and the sessions are really focused on you and on what you want to achieve. Working with Will has allowed me to address challenges I was facing and he brought a wealth of resources and practical tools to help me set goals, clarify my values, and explore avenues right away. Even though I left teaching 5 years ago, I still seek out Will for his help and guidance and I appreciate his versatility as a thought partner, ally, and coach. Our sessions are always productive and efficiently run, which is perfect for someone who is juggling many priorities! Will brings great communication, professionalism and quality to his work and I highly recommend him as a life/business coach.

Will at Mapleleaf vision fitted me in for a last minute decision-making session that I needed to make ASAP re. a job offer / career change. He was friendly, professional, and really knew his stuff! He unpicked things that I could never have done on my own. I’m so grateful to him & will be highly recommending him to everyone! Where there is a ‘Will’, there’s a way! Thank you, Will. You truly have a gift.
