The first step in any significant change is to take stock of where you are and where you'd like to be. Reflect on your current job.

  • How might they point you in a new direction?


This self-assessment and time to reflect is crucial in understanding what you truly want from your career.


Research

Once you have a clearer idea of what you're looking for, it's time to explore the possibilities. Research industries and roles that align with your interests and values. Don't limit yourself to your current field; sometimes, the most fulfilling careers are found by branching out into areas you've never considered before. Use online resources, attend webinars, and talk to people in fields you're interested in to gather insight and advice.


Refresh

It's important to make sure your professional toolkit is up to date. This includes your CV, LinkedIn profile etc. Tailor your CV to highlight the skills and experiences that are most relevant to the roles you're interested in.


Top tip : Consider taking courses to fill any gaps in your skill set. By becoming more qualified, you're setting yourself apart in today's highly competitive marketplace.
