The vast majority of people experience at least
3 career changes during their working lives, and
the pace may be picking up in the 21st century.
Some career changes are voluntary, and some are
involuntary. Both work for you, if you take the right
approach and have the right mind set.
So, if you haven t already been through a career
change yet, you probably will be in the future. The
most successful career changes are usually the result
of a thoughtful, methodical process, and we ll help
you step through that process here.
CAREER VS. JOB
A "career" is your profession, and it hopefully has
a "career path" of jobs with increasing responsibility
A career change is typically more significant than
a job change. Hopefully, a career change leads to
more meaningful and personally rewarding work for
Although it may not always bring a greater salary,
at least intially, it should bring greater satisfaction
- so that Monday when you head back to work isn t
the worst day of the week as it is for so many (the
day that people in the USA typically have a heart
A "job" is what you do every day.
For many of us, a job is not a "career" - it is "just
a job." It pays the bills but it doesn t do much more
For those of us who are incredibly lucky or who
have paid attention to their own priorities and inter-
ests, a job is part of a career. Typically, we don t
think of it as a job, when it is something we love to
do. It is "my work" or "what I do."
CAREER CHANGE VS. JOB CHANGE
Hopefully, when we make a voluntary or involuntary
job change, we take the time to make sure the new
job fits into our career path. If we don t, chances are
good that we ll be in another job search sooner than
we need to be because the job isn t a good fit. Which
means we won t enjoy doing it, won t do it as well
as we could, and may not be good enough at it to
keep it for very long.
The best solution is to take the time to think about
what you "really want to do when you grow up." If
not now, when?
This section of Job-Hunt will hopefully help you
with that transition from job to career, or from one
career to another one, as times (and people) change.
BEFORE YOU INVEST IN
ADDITONAL EDUCATION OR TRAINING...
With most careers, you can migrate into the new
field choosing your jobs and employers carefully, as
described in this column (see the articles in the list
on the right). Set your goal, make a plan, and then
implement your plan to change your career.
Many other careers may require that you
invest additional money in education or training
to meet the professional requirments of the
career or the entry-level jobs for that career.
You don t want to spend a great deal of
time, effort, and money on a degree or a
program which will not payoff for you when
you have graduated. Before you invest in a
degree or certification program, do some
• Is the career projected to grow in demand
over the next ten years?
• Is the median salary (the salary earned
by people with several years of experience
in the job) sufficient for your needs?
• What is the track record for the school?
• Is there any independent rating of the
quality of the school?
• How many of the graduates found jobs
in the appropriate fields?
• Does the school support an internship
program which allows students to gain
experience in the appropriate job?
• Does the school have a career center that
supports graduating students?
• Does the school have a career center that
supports alumni after they have graduated
(both new grads and alumni several years
Do your best to choose field that is grow-
ing and, if additional education is required,
choose a school with a good rating, suc-
cessful graduates, and long-term career
support for graduates.
"A 'career' is your
profession, and it
hopefully has a "career
path" of jobs with
and reward. A career
change is typically more
significant than a job
change. Hopefully, a
career change leads to
more meaningful and
work for you."
