Thinking of Transitioning Careers? TAKE THESE 5 STEPS

Thinking of Transitioning Careers? TAKE THESE 5 STEPS

When most people think “job search,” the steps that come to mind include résumés, applications and interviews.

That can feel scary.

Especially if you’ve been working at your current company for many years, the thought of interviews and getting “out there again,” could feel overwhelming, no doubt.

But truth is, before you’re even at that step of résumés and interviews, when you are looking to transition careers, your successful search starts far earlier than that.

Do What You Love And The Money Will Follow – NOT!

Do What You Love And The Money Will Follow – NOT!

If Do What You Love, The Money Will Follow had been a Katy Perry song instead of a book, it would have been the anthem of the late 80s and early 90s.  This advice didn’t stop there.  On June 12, 2005, Steve Jobs, then CEO of Apple Computer and Pixar Animation Studios, delivered the commencement address at Stanford.  Perhaps the most memorable quote from his address is:

“The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.” -Steve Jobs

I also vividly remember that lingering sensational smell that radiated from her face every time she came to kiss me goodnight.

Why Going Back To School Is A Real Option For You

“I don’t want to let anyone down, and I want to make sure that I can be that backbone for the family if they need me. When I went to school at a traditional four-year university, I had stadium seating classes, a lot of students. You didn’t have that personal rapport with the professors. Here I spend hours upon hours with my instructors, just one-on-one time, and that’s totally priceless to me. I love this school.

I was working a sales job downtown that I absolutely hated, and I realized that I needed to start a career. So I got online and did some research and my roommate was like, ‘Hey, you’d make a great paralegal. You watch criminal justice shows all day long.’ So I looked into it, and I found out that Brightwood College did have a good program.
