Changing Career at 40

The old cliché “40 is the new 30” now seems to be true. Compared to previous generations, in terms of health and life expectancy, this sentence looks pretty appropriate. Beginning a new job at 40 can be an exciting way to change how you feel about your work life, and improve your financial situation.

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

  • Keep calm and…change career!

This is an important caution about a career change at 40, because it may be the last time you take this big of a risk. The more time and thought you can give to choosing your career, the better your choice will be.

  • One change at a time

If you decided to change your career at 40, try to avoid other important life changes as well. Keep your home life, social life and relationships as steady as possible at the moment. So do one change at a time, and then you can focus on one more change, and so on.

  • Choose a job you love

You should avoid thinking about the hottest new careers. It is better understand what you want to work at every day. This will help you find long-term job satisfaction and help you decide on a meaningful career change at 40.

  • Strength Assessments

However, if nothing on your interests and skills lists intersect, consider taking some strength assessments. You can visit a career counsellor to receive help about what you are good at and what you like to do. At that point, you will be able to determine which areas are the most suitable for you and what are the best options for your next career.
