Changing Career at 30

Once you have hit your 30s, it is likely that you have invested a considerable amount of time, money and energy into building your career to date. However, considering that most people will work well into their 60s or even 70s, it could be worth putting in the time to find a career that’s both satisfying and rewarding.

However, before thinking about a career change, you need to make sure it is for the right reasons. Bad motivations to change careers, such as problems with your boss, wanting to meet new people or working too many hours, can likely be overcome with a new job in a similar role and industry.

A career change choice requires precisions, decision and complete strictness to follow it. Here are some ideas which you can implement.

 

  • Self-assessment

You cannot afford to make a career change without assessing your career situation first. Look at how you like to work, what your career values are and the things you’d gladly do even if you were not getting paid to do it. This will help you identify the kind of role you should be aiming for. Then it is time to look at what employers are looking for when it comes to that particular role. Do some research by checking out current job ads and seeing what skills are required of potential applicants. This will confirm your suitability for that level of work, or give you some idea of the skills you need to work on.

 

  • Consider further study

Undertaking further study can often give you the new credentials required to make a career change. However, a new university degree might not guarantee you a job straight away because graduating from university no longer seems to hold the import it once did. Employers are now interested in our practical experience and extracurricular, as well as the outside work we do. For this reason, it is more useful to attend an industry focused professional training combined with academic learning. 360 GSP is an excellent example for individuals that would like to pursue a career in IT technical support or IT networking.

  • Make a lateral move in your company

If your current role is not the right fit, you may not necessarily have to move into a completely new industry altogether. Look at the current company you work for and see if there are any other areas in the business that you could move into. Start by speaking with your HR department to explore the possibility of making a lateral move into a different area.
