When thinking about reinventing
and changing your career, there is no
perfect approach for everyone. There
are many routes to take and more than
one might work for you.
Finding and Testing a New Career
The key in this step of the process is to
"craft some experiments" and try out
different possibilities to see how they feel to
you. By implementing these low-cost, low-
risk projects, you'll be able to get greater
clarity without necessarily quitting your
Here are some of the benefits of crafting
• Confirming whether a career is
appealing to you.
• Allowing you to try different skills, and
see if you get satisfaction from using
• Enabling you to assess any themes or
patterns that emerge from your
Getting you to move forward.
As you go about crafting these
experiments to try out different fields, here
are some questions you should keep in
• Would I enjoy this field and the people
who work in it?
• Does it come easily and would I be good
• Could I make a living doing this work?
("a living" is different for everyone)
• Is there room for promotion/growth in
• How stressful is the work? Will it fit
Different Ways to Change Careers and
Once you have completed the self-
exploration phase (analyzing your
motivated skills, interests, values,
motivators, and behavioral style), you'll be
ready to move forward toward your goal.
Here are several different ways to craft
experiments and reinvent:
One way to try out a new career or field is
to engage in volunteer work in the new
arena, by finding an organization that
intrigues you. It will provide you with an
unlimited view into how this type of work
fits your interests, passions, and goals. And,
it will provide you with insight as to
whether your skills match up to this type of
work. At the same time, volunteering can
open up new networking avenues/contacts
for you, which may be useful later if you
decide to pursue this field on a more
Work Part Time.
A similar approach would be to keep your
current job (or a reduced hour version of
your current job), and then start working
part time for a company you are interested
in or in a job that you desire. So much work
is contracted out that you can get
experience working in a prospective career
through freelance and/or temporary work.
If you like your company but just don't
like your job (i.e. the skills you are using on a
daily basis), think about transferring within
your company. You could first start out by
volunteering to work on a project or task
force in a different area of the company. This
option will of course involve getting buy-in
from your manager and perhaps other
senior individuals in your organization.
Another method of reinventing involves
formal education and or additional training.
If you know your future direction and can
afford it, you can go back to college full
time, pick up your new graduate degree, and
move on to your new career. If, like the rest
of us, you can't afford that option, you can
enroll in a part-time graduate program,
while networking to craft experiments.
Also, taking extra individual professional
courses, classes, and seminars, or working
toward the completion of short-term
certification programs will help you
advance your efforts to change your career.
If you have identified your future career
goals and know how you want to transition,
then you might be able to repackage and
rebrand yourself to better meet the required
skills and competencies for the new
position. In addition to the basic functional
skills that you possess to do your job well,
you also may have communications,
collaboration, leadership, and team-
building capabilities that are transferable to
almost any profession. Rebrand by
highlighting what is UNIQUE, differentiated,
and compelling about you to your target
audience, so they know what makes you
The key in this step of the process
is to "craft some experiments"
and try out different possibilities
to see how they feel to you.
