- What is it about your current job that makes you want to switch careers? When considering a career change, it is important to evaluate the likes and dislikes you have about your current job. Remember, though, that no job is perfect, so you’re just looking for one where the positives outweigh the negatives.
- What does the new career offer me that my current job doesn’t? Consider what you would like about the new field and how it would fit you better than your current job.
- Am I analyzing all sides of the equation? You also need to look at the negative aspects of the new field and weigh them against the positive aspects. You also need to consider the costs that will be involved with changing fields, such as education and certification.
