Posts Tagged ‘career shift’

In all my research and experience, one of the most consistent pieces of advice I’ve received and given is to show that you are active in the field you want to pursue. Whether your career shift is in a different direction in the same field or whether you are looking to break into something completely new, showing you are a mover and shaker in your field is a great way to get people interested in what you have to offer. And, if you’ve already taken that first step towards a new career and left your previous job, this is a great way to maintain your activity to show that not currently having a job has not slowed you down at all. In today’s digital age, there are countless ways to stay active in your field and show prospective clients and employers that you are at the forefront of what you do.

We live in a tough time to be without a job right now. For two or three years now, I’ve been positioning myself and searching for a new career path. It’s not that I didn’t love my old one, but I had grown ready for a change and ready to take on more responsibility and a larger leadership role in my career. Six months ago, I made a monumental decision. I fully committed myself to this new career search, and formally resigned from my teaching position.
