Research is essential to the process of career change, but research can only begin when you have a sense of what you are looking for – i.e. some initial career ideas that interest you. A great way to come up with career ideas is to consult websites like Career Cruising. Career Cruising offers a wealth of information on general roles that you might be interested in, based on your preferred skills, working conditions, and ideal industries. At the very least, it's a great place to brainstorm ideas before you engage in further research.
