Finding a meaningful career that suits your skills and interest appears difficult and overwhelming. However, you can locate your inner career compass by finding the types of activities you enjoy. If you currently have a job, but you find yourself struggling to get out of bed, then it may be time for you to change careers.

Identifying Your Skills

The ideal career for you enables you to use your talents and interests in a work environment where your skills are nurtured and appreciated. You will likely change careers several times during your lifetime. Most people experience growth and changes in their lifetime that cause them to question their career path.

Years ago, most people chose one career for their entire life and retired with a nice pension. In today’s modern times, it is simply not as easy to stick with one career option due to changes within the business and economic world. Try to imagine a career where you get up in the morning and cannot wait to get to work. Match your talents, knowledge and skills to the varying career options available to you.

Understanding Your Career Options

There are many career opportunities in a variety of industries; health care, real estate, finance, travel and more. Study different industries to understand job requirements, average salary and match to your own expectations and skill level. Keep in mind that you will likely make less money by switching to a new career where you are an entry-level employee. You will also have to work through a probationary period where you cannot take off work even though you accrue vacation and sick time.

For example, if you want to work in healthcare, then visit the job openings page of hospitals, surgery centers and doctor’s offices. Look at the requirements for different positions to figure out what kind of training you need. If you must go back to school, then consider online courses while working your current job. Explore a variety of industries that interest you to decide whether the position appeals to you. You can also set up an appointment with a career counselor at your local community college or university.

Develop Your Action Plan

The first step in developing your action plan is to write down your career goals, expected salary and commitment to training. If you want to become a registered nurse, then you will need an action plan that calls for going back to school. You could become a patient care technician, which only requires a few months of training, and finish nursing school while working as a tech for a hospital. This will also ensure your tuition is covered by the hospital or care center. You must also have a timeline written down for completing your studies or other training.

Choose a career that requires the amount of education that matches your commitment. Not all careers require a bachelor’s degree or healthcare training. If you are still not sure about your new career path, then take a few courses until you make up your mind. A new career is an exciting transition that requires dedication, patience and persistence. If you have your mind made up, then you can be successful.
