These Are The Only Tips You Need to Follow If You Want To Take That Career Change Leap & Improve Your Finances
There are many reasons why a person might decide to change careers after working at their current one for many years. Some of the most common ones include better pay and opportunities.
But although many have somewhat similar goals and reasons for wanting this change, people come from different circumstances that may lead to them taking on different paths during their job search. That said, here are some practical tips for job seekers depending on their specific situation.
For Those Coming Out of Unemployment
People who are coming out of long-term unemployment for whatever reason will face the challenge of proving their work ethics and abilities to themselves and their boss. To prepare to take on this task and get back into the routine of work, people are advised to take refresher courses about their field of profession as they go on their job hunt.
For Older Job Seekers
While a good chunk of career advice is targeted to those who’ve recently finished or left school, there are numerous people above the age of 45 say that they’ll probably be in the job market in the next year.
One thing these demographic of workers can do to be more attractive to hiring managers is to ensure that their skills match the needs of the current times. This means researching the job they desire and then working to acquire the necessary skill set needed to qualify for it.
Being an introvert poses a lot of challenges in one’s career. For example, they may not be as keen to socialize leading them to not meet new people or take on opportunities to network. This, in turn, might make the job search harder for them. One can get over this challenge by taking the time to assess one’s traits and knowing which areas they need to improve.
In the middle of a ‘U-Turn’
Meanwhile, those who find themselves wanting to make a career u-turn and return to a previous job will benefit from looking at skills they can transfer and use in their target job position. Some of the skills hiring managers look for in candidates regardless of the sector are great interpersonal and communication skills.
Make sure to highlight these in the applications being sent out. Seeing these skills can assure potential employers that a candidate won’t be needing to learn a new skillset once hired.
For Serial Job Hoppers
Job hoppers are sometimes seen in a negative light by hiring managers because their job history hints at them having a lack of commitment. This doesn’t mean that one is automatically disqualified from being considered though. What matters is that a job hopper can demonstrate their ability to succeed despite the many positions they’ve held before.
