An astonishing 71% of people see their work as just a job, not a career. If you feel stuck in a rut, is it too late for you to change careers?
According to research carried out by Vodafone, people between the ages of 31 – 35 are most unhappy at work. A second study by GSM found that those over 34 believe they are too old to change careers.
|This market is always evolving, meaning standard job requirements are becoming more flexible.|
Does the thought of spending the rest of your life in your current job break you out in a cold sweat? Chances are, you need a new job. Of course, this is easier said than done if you’ve worked your way to a good position and salary within a company.
Is your main concern starting again from the bottom? This doesn’t have to be the case. Over your time as an employee, you’ve gained various skills, experience and wisdom which is invaluable within the workplace. These skills are commonly referred to as soft skills, and are thought to account for 85% of job success!
Career change is not just for those who know what they want to do in life. Gone is the age-old mantra of sticking with a job in perpetuity - now replaced with a dynamic labour market. This market is always evolving, meaning standard job requirements are becoming more flexible.
|You should use the flexibility of the market to your advantage, exploring different job opportunities...|
This is good news for those with family commitments, as employees now have the right to request flexible working arrangements. Many employers also offer variable shift patterns, the ability to work from home and part-time work to accommodate their staff members.
You should use the flexibility of the market to your advantage, exploring different job opportunities until you find what your heart truly desires. You may even end up in a career which you have never considered before, but find your skills and needs are matched perfectly.
Lack of confidence is another reason many people resist changing career paths. The best way to remedy this is by consulting with a seasoned professional, such as a consultant here at Just. We will be able to mentor you every step along the way of finding a new job, and we know how to turn a CV into a story; showing employers how valuable you really are.
Rather than ask yourself when the oldest age for switching careers is, sit and have a think about what you really want from the rest of your life. Rest assured, Just will always be there to help you through the process.
