Advice for those thinking of a career change Abridged: Dromore Leader

NEW YORK, NY -- With spring now upon us, some people may be thinking that it's time for a change of career. Here are some useful tips for those thinking about a change of direction in their working life, trying to decide on a career for the first time or facing unemployment or redundancy.

Maybe you find you don't enjoy work as much as you used to and wonder if you are on the right path. Perhaps you've gone as far as you can in your current career and feel the need for further challenges and development. It could be that you're just fed up, asking yourself, "Do I like where my job and my company are headed?" For some, it could even be that you've been unemployed for a while, feel stuck in a rut and need help with your job search.

In all these cases, the most important thing is to think carefully. Don't leap before you look! Especially if considering changing careers, take it slowly and make sure that you really want to change careers as the grass always appears greener on the other side--but may not be. Remember that career change is a natural life progression. Most studies show that the average job-seeker will change careers, not jobs, several times over the course of his or her lifetime.
