Its not very often people finish high school and know exactly what career they want to do for the rest of the lives. Most times we finish school, pick a filed that seems interesting to us to study further and then hop on the job train in that field. We all hope this profession will keep happy for the 50 odd years to come but that’s usually not the case. One day we wake and realise something has to change and we are longer satisfied with the path we have chosen.
And you know what? That’s absolutely fine!
I like to think that as we get older we are always evolving into something new. Sometimes we change the country we live in, sometimes the people we call friends and other times its our career. Discovering who you really are is a process that happens over time and you will not be the same person you were 5 or 10 years ago.
So what do you do when you have decided on changing your career? You have worked in one role for quite some time and are probably not sure how on earth to take that first step, into something completely new? Then, how do we even begin to convince a prospective employer to consider us for the job when we have a completely different set of skills?
Well, you are one of the lucky ones to have found this article. Here are some great tips on how to show your current skills are transferable into a new environment, having a higher chance of getting the change you need!
