Tips on How to Start a New Career

1. Know what you do best. Make a list of what you enjoy doing and what you doesn’t. They are usually the same things. Don’t think about jobs yet, think about your talents and interests.

2. List your training and experience.

3. Now think about jobs.

4. Narrow the list to a few possible careers — no more than three or four.

5. Learn all you can about your chosen new career. Search the Internet.

6. Changing your mind? That’s fine, just go back to step 3 or 4 and start over. It will be worth the time in the long run. When you are sure about the career path you want, move on to the next step.

7. Keep your old job if possible.

8. Do you need more training?

9. Join a union or professional organization. There are organizations for people in just about any career. One more Internet search can lead you to local or national groups.

10. When you have the skills and training you need, polish your resume, and start your job search.
