It can be scary to admit to yourself that you aren't happy with your current job situation and that you need a change. It brings up a whole host of questions about the future, financial stability, and uncertainty about what you're actually going to do next. It's a lot to take in. I get that.
That's why it's important to get clarity first about what you want, to identify your top career prospects, and create a plan for moving forward educationally and professionally.
It's a big task, I know, but it is not impossible. I see it happen all the time, and one common theme in successful transitions is the ability to break things down into manageable steps so that you can face your career change fears gradually but intentionally.
As a career coach, I have developed a career change strategy for my clients that brings them clarity, reduces stress, and keeps them moving toward their goals, and I'd be happy show it to you. So if you are in a place where you feel you need to make a change, be encouraged. There is a way forward and you are definitely worth it!
