Have you been feeling bored or frustrated at work lately? Or, mid-way you feel unsure if the current college program is the right one for you? There are times when you come to realise that where you are currently may not be self-satisfying, which can get mentally exhausting, and worse, TOXIC.
Steve Jobs said: “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”
Career satisfaction is an important consideration that underpins your self-esteem and mental health, plus your loved one’s financial security…so there is a lot at stake.
The average person will change careers 5 to 7 times during their working years, according to career change statistics.
While a job change or an international MBA seems like a good escape route to reset the clock and start off fresh, it’s an expensive & risky option and there’s no guarantee that the problems you were facing will disappear.
For a strong, successful transition, you’ll need to identify what is currently making you unhappy, and what will make you happy in the future.
70% of the workforce is actively looking for a change in career.
