In this episode, I discuss what a career PIVOT is, and how you can decide if this is for you.
If you’re not enjoying what you’re currently doing, you might be wanting to change your role, organisation or the industry that you work in.
There’s one thought I hear that holds people back though:
‘I’ve been doing this role for years. If I were to change to something different, I will need to retrain or get a new qualification’.
In this episode, I challenge that thought. After all, if this was true, you wouldn’t see people being promoted.
Promotion is based on the skillset that you have, your potential, and the value you’ve already demonstrated. It isn’t based on experience as you have never done that role before!
If you want to move into a new role, you don’t have to have experience.
You just need to demonstrate that you have the skillset that translates into that role, to be able to articulate how you’re going to operate at that level, and cultivate the trust that you are a candidate who will know how to operate in this new space.
What you will learn:
- Why you don’t always need to retrain to get a new role
- The two types of career pivot and which may apply to you
- Two examples of people who made a pivot without needing to retrain
Why you don’t always need to retrain to get a new role – This is a common assumption but I explain why this isn’t always the case.
The two types of career pivot and which may apply to you – I discuss the options of moving into a new industry in a similar type of role or moving to a different role in the same industry.
Two examples of people who made a pivot – I provide two examples from people I have worked with who have made a career pivot without needing to retrain (including a promotion and a pay rise!)
