Demystifying How to Achieve and Manage Your Next Career Transition
Have you looked into changing your career lately? Did you feel somewhat overwhelmed thinking about how that change might occur and what it would mean for your life? If your answer to the above questions is yes, you are not alone. A 2019 Forbes magazine article noted that only 50% of the people surveyed say that they are happy in their current job. The statistic indicates that given an opportunity many people would likely transition from their current jobs or careers to find greater happiness and satisfaction.
Career transitions, however, may likely look intimidating to many, inviting fear, anxiety, and even dread. While considering career transitions, several personal and environmental factors, such as educational qualifications and professional experience, can determine if the journey is going to be easy or difficult.
This engaging session will demystify what it takes to achieve successful career transitions into five easy-to-follow steps and practical tips. Using on-line interactive techniques and small group breakouts, participants will learn how to recognize a need for career transitions, identify transition options, and take specific action steps to move forward.
