Anyone who has ever held a job for more than a day has felt this way. And in this troubling economy the thought of changing careers (no matter how miserable you feel at your current job) is scary. Truth is though that the unemployment rate is not THAT high. Over 90% of the population is working and there are still some TOP companies that are hiring. So put those fears aside and explore the possibility that you can have a “career” you love, instead of a “job” you hate.
At times we all have had a restlessness in our current jobs and a desire to make a change but with the responsibilities of family etc., we are reluctant to move out. That is why many people stay in jobs that they absolutely hate all their life and just resign themselves to such a life. Folks, that ain’t living! My father did this for almost 20+ years and he was absolutely miserable the whole time. You’re life is worth so much MORE than a paycheck!
So step back and ask for help – from a professional. A career coach can best help you cut through the crap and find the answer to what you’re looking for in a career.
What Is A Career Coach, And How Can I Find This Magical Person?
A career coach is a person with specialized training to help people find their define their special skills – and even dreams – that many times have laid buried. Then they help you to translate that into career choices. Sometimes ones you never even thought about, or others that you’ve wanted but thought you didn’t have skills for (surprise! You probably do).
There is absolutely no advantage in being stuck in a dead end career that is going nowhere. The economy may be down but there are jobs available for those people with the courage to make a move. The next move is yours. Take it!
