Career Change – Things to Consider

Deciding to change careers can be challenging for some people. The uncertainty of change and new challenges can be daunting but quite often a career change is the positive step you need. Jobs in the IT sector increased by 22% this year, making them an attractive opportunity for people looking to change careers. In fact, digital employment on the whole is set to grow by 5.4% by 2020.

If that sounds like a sector you’d like to be in, great! Here’s some tips on how it can be done:

  • Set realistic objectives: You need to be realistic and work towards a new role with evening classes or shadowing someone with the right experience. The more you can do to develop your new skills, the more attractive you will be to potential employers.

  • Believe in yourself: What sort of working environment do you think you’ll be happy in? What energises you most? All these questions will help you to identify some possible avenues. Try spending a bit of time thinking about yourself and what fulfils you. It will help you to make the right choice.
