  2. 2. T IP 1 : AVOID B E I N G U N N E C E S S A R I LY D R A M AT I CWhen people are frustrated with their job, they often feel like they have tomake a very dramatic change to feel better. Sometimes a change ofcompany is the enough, or even a change in position at their existing company.Whatever makes you most happy is the perfect way to go.When you’re unhappy at work, your situation may be one of two things:1. It seems worse than it is and you’re just going through a rough patch.2. You may not have to make huge change in your career path. You may need more of a course correction. ©2002-2012
  3. 3. T IP 2 : C ARVE OUT THE TIMEWe are all busy, that’s not an excuse to put off your career transition. You must findthe time in your busy schedule to devote to your career change. Look at yourtypical weekly schedule and figure out when you can find the time for your careerprocess. Is it one evening a week after work for a few hours? Is it early Saturday morning before the kids get up? Do you want to use some of your lunch hour for time away from the office to go to a coffee shop with your computer and do some work?Find a way that works for you with no excuses! ©2002-2012

TIP 4: GET ORGANIZEDIt’s imperative that you get very organized, and remain organized,throughout the entire career change process. This will help you so that you don’t get lost in the information you gather or lost in your networking efforts with others. After you have set aside a specific space in your life for this work, devise a system to get organized with your material. Doing this up front will ensure greater success along the way, and will prevent you from wasting time going back and re-doing research you’ve already performed because you didn’t keep good track of it. ©2002-2012
