Career change is part of many people’s working life, whether it is your choice or someone else’s decision.
You need courage and much personal insight to make the decision to change your employment, especially if you want to do something quite different, but it can be very empowering.
In contrast, you can feel like you’ve been thrown on the scrapheap if you lose your job as an older worker. “Who will employ someone in their 50s or older?” says the little voice in your head.
You feel strong emotions, fears and stress when career change is forced on you.
BoomersNextStep offers a lot of free professional assistance for people who want to change their career. We are all about reinventing your career as a mature age worker. Look for our articles about the strategies you can use and how you can prepare effectively to change the direction of your career.
We also offer an excellent career renovation program. Career Reno guides you gently with strategies and encouragement. We help you make truly empowering career decisions, all aimed at having the success you deserve.
Would you prefer professional career counselling (to help you decide the career direction you want to take)? Perhaps coaching (helping you with the strategies to get the job you want)? I can certainly help you with that too.
Don’t be one of those people who put up with jobs that they hate because they are afraid that a career change is too risky “at their age”. Read our Career Change posts, check out Career Reno, or contact me to discuss if career counselling or coaching would be right for you.
