Tips To Help Ease Your Career Transition
  • Opening Intro -

    The transition into a new career is a strange time for anyone.

    There's a mixture of fear, excitement, and anticipation that is difficult to describe to someone who's never been through the experience.


Trying to adjust your skills and talents to another field can be tricky, but it is possible. It’s a commendable act to take your future into your own hands and decide to switch careers.

That’s why we’ve gathered a few tips to help ease your career transition so that you can head into it with a feeling that you can handle anything that comes your way.

Reach Out To Others Who Have Been Where You Are

One of the best ways to ease into your career transition is to get in contact with someone who has done something similar. Not only can they help by giving you advice about what to do next, but you might get some ideas on your next move based on what they are doing.

Try to figure out how they translated their skills from one field into a whole new one.

Get Experience Through Volunteering

Your first thought is going to be about getting a new job right off the bat. However, if you’re having trouble doing that, don’t forget that you can volunteer your skills as well.

Volunteering not only looks good on a resume, but it also proves that you actually have the abilities necessary to thrive in your new career path.

Get an Accelerated Education

The idea of going back to school is enough to fill almost anyone with a sense of dread, but the truth is, it’s much easier to hit the books when you’re doing something you love. Also, you don’t need to go back to a full four-year program.

There are plenty of faster programs, like accelerated managerial training or coding bootcamps, that can prepare you for your new career direction in a fraction of the time.

Plan Out a Timeline

Being between careers can be both fun and nerve-wracking. To minimize the time that you spend not working, you’ll want to keep yourself to a pretty tight deadline. Set a date sometime in the future when you think you should have all your career plans ready—and stick to it.

Setting this deadline in stone will make your plans feel less mercurial and force you to get down to business, even when it would be easier not to.

other valuable tips:

Celebrate Your Victories

There are going to be many moments that won’t go your way. At the same time, you shouldn’t only focus on failures. Celebrate the little victories. Maybe you didn’t get the job, but you did get a second interview.

Maybe you’re having a tough time finding a position, but you applied to at least one company that day. Rejoicing in these smaller victories will keep your morale high when the job search begins to drag.
