  • 3. TIP #2
    • Be committed
      • To make any large change in your life (and career change is big) you have to be committed.
      • Your level of commitment can make or break whether you’re successful.
      • Only when you are truly committed will you invest the time and energy necessary for a successful career transition.

  • 4. TIP #3
    • Define success your way
      • Don’t stay in a job you dislike because friends or family think it’s a great job, or because you don’t want to admit you made a mistake.
      • Define success your way, find a job that is a fit for you.
      • Think about and write down what success means to you.

  • 5. TIP #4
    • Look at the big picture
      • Many people choose a career based on past experience, maybe their natural talents, and salary. They think, “Well I’m good at this and it pays well so I’ll try it.”
      • You have to consider much more than just experience and salary in order to identify your ideal career.
      • Consider what you would enjoy doing in an ideal job, and what fulfills you.

  • 6. TIP #5
    • Identify your natural talents and abilities
      • When people use their natural abilities at work, their job is more fulfilling to them.
      • Make a list of the things you do that come naturally to you, the things that make you unique.

  • 7. TIP #6
    • Don’t discount what comes naturally
      • Not everyone else is good at the things that come naturally to you.
      • Write down 5 things you do really well, maybe even better than anyone you know.
      • Realize these are gifts that you have to offer - that not everyone can do these things really well.

  • 9. TIP #8
    • Set goals and create a transition plan
      • In career transition, as with any change you’re making in your life, you need to set goals and develop a plan.
      • By doing this, you set yourself up for success. This is an extremely important step because it will keep you focused, organized and committed.
      • Create a job hunting schedule. Treat your job search as a job.

  • 10. TIP #9
    • Just take a step - get started in a direction
      • Identifying your ideal career is a process that has to unfold.
      • If you wait until you have every answer and know every single step you need to take, you’re going to be waiting a very long time.
      • Just take a step in a direction that feels right, and allow yourself the freedom to explore options as you move forward.
      • You’ll figure it out, you have to trust that you’ll know what the next step is once you get there. Just take a step.

  • 11. TIP #10
    • Get Support
      • Support during this process is vitally important . Change can be tough – and making any change requires persistence, commitment and effort.
      • People who are part of a group to support them in their goals do better, 100% of the time.
      • Create a solid support network; it can be a mentor, a buddy, family or friends, a spouse/partner or of course, a career coach .
