In this episode I talk about whether it is too late to make a career change.
When you are considering a career change there are a lot of questions that you ask yourself, such as am I too old? Is this the right time to make the move or will I have to start all over again?
You are not too old. You have gained a depth and breadth of experience that will be valuable to a future employer. If you don’t make the move now, when will you make the move? Now is a good time to make that career move that you have been procrastinating about.
Making a career move doesn’t have to equal starting over.
With all the sacrifices you have made. All of the hard work that has gone into getting to this stage of your career need not to be wasted. Over the years you have gained so much valuable experience which is easily overlooked. Recognise your knowledge as value then its so much easier to filter out your transferable skills for your new career path.
