Considering a career change

Could a change in career be your best next step? 

If you’ve recently lost your job or been furloughed and aren’t sure when or whether you’ll start your job again, use this time as breathing space to think about what you actually want to do next… turn an unexpected career break into a positive and review your current situation. Do you enjoy what you do, are there good prospects, or would you actually like to do something quite different? Take a little ‘you’ time and find out whether you can transfer your skills from one industry to another or how you could retrain to do something completely different. Take control of your future now.  

There are many ways to start to narrow down the field from thinking about where your passions lie by thinking about what you like doing, to hearing from other people about their careers and why they would recommend them.
