Do you feel that you are on the wrong career path? Let’s start exploring the path to your dream job!
We all know someone who feels that they are on the wrong path career-wise or feels that they have more to achieve or give. That person may be you, a family member, a colleague or perhaps an employee. Your own career may have progressed to a point where many of your network come to you for advice on their own careers.
Traditionally, careers have focused primarily on the corporate sector and on “making a good living.” In the future, I see a dramatic expansion of entrepreneurial and freelance options, and a more diverse set of goals for work as a path to your dream job.Stepping stones to get where you wnat is always on the cards with never leaving your financial job to break out on your own business.
I believe to set goals and make a plan to your dream job!
Creating a business where you can sell goods and services online is already becoming a pervasive source of income and engagement for many people in late-stage careers, and this will accelerate.
Freelance work can be a great pillar in a long-tail career of the future. It offers “mastery for hire” in exchange for income and advances in technology and social networking are making it easier to find and perform freelance assignments. Freelance assignments can provide interesting work and interaction at a time when you have a lot more time on your hands.
You have probably heard the term ‘Career Transition’, but what does this really mean?
- Could it be transitioning to a completely new career or new sector?
- Could it involve transitioning into a leadership role?
- Could it involve a transitioning to a new geographical area?
- Could it involve transitioning following redundancy and making the most of your redundancy package?
- Could it involve transitioning back into employment following an extended period of leave?
- Could it involve retraining and upskilling in order to transition into a new field?
- Could it entail transitioning to retirement and making retirement work for you?
It could be any of the above. The fact is that we need to be prepared for change at any time although some changes are less dramatic than others. As the era of the traditional linear career and the permanent, pensionable job is ending, we have to equip ourselves to be ready for change in our careers.
