Selected the Wrong Career or Job? Need an escape hatch? Start scoping your needs and Execute on a transition plan.
Over 50% of Millennials surveyed in 2019 said that they were dissatisfied in their current role and even their choice of industry. They really have 2 choices;
- Acceptance of their negative situation
- Energize and take specific career transition action
Keep in mind that more than one third of your life will be spent working. This may or may not include your commute to an office. By working in a negative environment, you are unnecessarily stressing your body and mind. Your confidence will whither when you tell yourself this is the only job that I can get.
This is the time in your career where you have to sit down and put your cards on the table. By using mind mapping tools (mindmeister.com) you can actually visualize what works and what needs to change. The process lets you visualize your passions, interests and opportunities.
Once you know what you want, it makes it easier to use professional networking tools to research companies / organizations, get the contacts you need and reach out for a warm handshake. By knowing who the players are in your area of interest you can reach out and ask for guidance, contacts and visibility to upcoming hiring opportunities.
It is okay to be scared and a bit anxious about a transition in your career. You will be able to examine job opportunities and descriptions and you will find similarities to your previous roles.
If you have the basics, you can show them that you are a fast learner and willing to start at the bottom and build my way up.
Do not become lazy or complacent. Do not let people tell you how difficult it will be for you to make this change.
