How to Make the Career Change You Need (The Complete Guide)

Are you challenged at work? Do you regret your career decisions? Do you feel content getting out of bed and thinking about the day of work ahead? If the answers to these questions lead to a negative feeling, it may be time to consider a career change.

Settling for a job to pay bills and maintain a lifestyle is stagnation. You can redirect the journey of a career with confidence by taking control of future decisions. After all, you deserve to live a happy life that will offer a work-life balance.

Let’s look at the reasons why you need a career change and how to choose a career for a more fulfilling life.

How to Know If You Need a Career Change

The challenges of dissatisfaction in a career can have a negative impact on our mental health. This can lead to the obvious appearance of stress, aging, weight gain, and internal health issues. But more importantly, everyone deserves to be happy.

You deserve a career that will fulfill the inner desire for true happiness. One that utilizes our talents and passions but doesn’t make us uncomfortable or even lead to depression. It’s not just about how tired we are of our jobs. You can be exhausted but still be happy in your career. But if you’re exhausted, unfulfilled and sad? It might be time for change. Here are some common signs that it is time for you to become a career changers and seek out your dream job.

Physical Signs

Have you aged more since you started your job? Do you have day-to-day anxiety? What about work-related injuries? Take not of these things. The stress on your mind may manifest in your body.

It feels amazing to receive a pay check, but you deserve to work in an environment that brings out the best in you. If the work environment is hazardous, speak to your boss about alternative options.

In the case that your colleagues or boss takes advantage of your kindness, feeling anxiety due to the fear of losing your job because of a high-stress environment may not be right for you. The fact that you don’t feel safe approaching your colleagues or employers may be a warning sign.

Mental Signs

One out of five Americans has mental health issues.[1] In most cases, it is related to stress.

Here is a list of mental signs of workplace unhappiness:

  • Neck tension
  • Difficulties with sleeping
  • Unable to concentrate
  • High anxiety
  • Depression

If you start to feel that your self-esteem is diminishing, it is time to consider if working in a high-stress industry is for you. Your career woes doesn’t just start and end with you. The truth is, this negative energy will be transferred to people in your life, such as friends and family.

Emotional Signs

Is your work making you feel numb and apathetic to everything around you? Just because you’re not explicitly angry or distressed, does not mean you’re in an emotionally healthy state.

Having an unfulfilling and stressful career can affect even your personal life. Things that you used to be excited about may seem boring to you now. You may even seem less empathetic to your friends and family.

If you feel like you’ve lost the ability to feel anything – whether that be happiness, anger or even jealousy – your work may be the root cause.

Other Symptoms

In addition to the above signs, you may also be experiencing some of these:

Your Current Career Does not Allow You to Focus on Your Priorities

What truly matters to you? What do you really want to accomplish in your life? How do you want to spend your time? It’s absolutely crucial to consider what your priorities are and build a life that allows you to focus on what matters most to you.

As a doctor of physical therapy, I see people every day who have had their lives change drastically in the blink of an eye. From traumatic brain injuries to strokes, to motor vehicle accidents… these people’s lives have been forever changed instantly. I’ve had many wonderful patients, men and women, weep as they tell me about how they have saved their big dreams for retirement and now they’ll never get to live those dreams. Taking care of these patients on a regular basis has reminded me of the importance of focusing my life on what matters most right now.

Saving your biggest dreams for retirement is a risky move. If your current career path doesn’t allow you to focus your life on what truly matters to you, it’s time to seriously consider making a career change.

You Want to Make a Different Impact in the World than Your Job Allows

You are here to make a mark on the world. What will your mark be? Thinking about the impact you want to make can help guide your career choice.

Every Friday, You Wildly Exclaim, “TGIF!”

Fridays are great, but it’s possible to have a job where almost every day is just as wonderful as Friday. It’s truly possible to do work you love so much, that you actually look forward to Mondays. While weekends are fun, if you’re the one in the office every single week excitedly proclaiming the arrival of the weekend, you might want to think about building a career you like better than your current one.

You’re Envious of People in Other Careers

Pay attention to how you feel when other people talk about their jobs. If you are envious of other people’s careers, pinpoint what you’re jealous about. Is it their work hours, or their specific work duties? Is it the company they work for? Is it their lifestyle? If you find yourself thinking, “must be nice…” when people talk about their jobs, it might be time for you to consider switching jobs.

You’re Feeling Restless

Perhaps you’ve enjoyed your job for many years, and you appreciate the wonderful career you’ve had, but now you’d love to try something new. Pay attention to that restless feeling. Is there something tugging at your heart that you’d love to try? Life is short, and if you’re feeling stir crazy, you may want to consider exploring other careers.

If you’re feeling restless and not sure which career path to take next, start learning about subjects that interest you. Dive deeper into subjects you’re excited about. Start taking action, because clarity comes from taking action. Sign up for a community education class that entices you, or learn a new skill you’ve always wanted to learn.

Another way to deal with feeling restless is to consider how you could add value in your current career field while changing your job duties. Could you specialize in something you like at your current job? Could you start your own business? Could you coordinate a meaningful project at work?

We spend many hours of our lives at work. It’s important that our work is meaningful to us, and allows us to shine. If your current job doesn’t allow you to be the best version of you, it’s time to consider making a switch.

Are You Sure You’re Not Changing for the Wrong Reason?

Most people that feel they need a career change are frustrated with their situation at work. Do you really understand your current situation at work?

It is important to think about the work situation because some people decide to change careers for factors that are insignificant or have viable solutions—factors that can potentially change if the person works in a different department or new organization.

Here are some elements to consider before you decide to make a career change:

1. The Desire for a Higher Salary

The desire for a higher income can persuade some to believe that they are in the wrong career. The issue with this is more money requires more time in the office or taking on several positions at a time.

At times, pursuing a high-income role can be the complete opposite of what one expects. Instead of leaving your current position to look for a higher-paying one, you can talk with your boss to see if there is any possibility of a raise—now or in a couple of years. You can even see if you can re-negotiate your contract to include more benefits.

2. A High-Stress Moment

While long-term stress is unhealthy and should ultimately be avoided in order to preserve your health, moments of stress at a job are natural. For example, you may be working on a big presentation for a new client; this will inevitably lead to some stress, but the reward may be worth it. Don’t make the mistake of confusing long-term and short-term stress.

Make sure you think carefully before leaving a job during a temporary moment of high stress. Look at the bigger picture. Is this something that repeatedly happens or a one-time situation? Is the stress coming from outside pressure or just your own expectations?

3. Rejected for a Promotion

I have heard stories of managers that applied ten times for a position throughout a 5-year period. Yes, it sounds like a lengthy process, but, at times, a promotion requires time. Try not to jump the gun and change careers just because you got rejected for promotion once[2]. Consider giving it time; the situation may change in a year or two.

This is also a good time to reflect on the reason you were rejected. It’s an opportunity for growth. Ask the HR team or your supervisors for feedback and they may give you advise that could help you improve and reach greater heights.

4. Bored at Work

Think deeply about this point. If you work a repetitive job, it is normal to feel bored.

You can spice it up by changing the appearance of your desk, socializing with new employees in a different department, joining a leadership committee at work, or coming to work with enthusiasm. Sometimes, all it takes is a change of perspective.

10 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Making a Final Decision

A career change can take time; networking, education, and the job search process can be a journey. Here is a list of things to consider before making a final decision:

  • How long have you worked in your career?
  • What is the problem at work?
  • Do you work well with the team?
  • Do you receive recognition?
  • Are you excited by the prospect of advancing in your current career?
  • Can you consider working in a new department?
  • Can you change your situation without needing to leave your work?
  • Are your struggles caused by internal or external factors?
  • Are you willing to make changes to improve your situation?
  • When was the last time you were excited to come to work?

If after reviewing your work situation and none of the above recommendations help, then it’s time to make a career change.

How a Career Change Will Change Your Life

A career change can fulfill a lifelong dream, increase one’s self-esteem, or revive the excitement for one’s work.

You may be ready for a career change if you experience one or all of these:

A Negative Workplace

If negativity greets you at the door each time you arrive to work, moving to a new business or organization may be the right decision in order to preserve your mental health.

A Difficult Boss

You likely won’t get along with your boss 100% of the time, but they should, at the very least, be respectful of you and your time. If that’s not the case, address the issue directly with them. If that doesn’t work, it may be time for a career change.

Feeling Lost

Most people stay at their jobs and settle for mediocrity because of the fear of failure or the unknown. The rise to success often comes with working a tedious role or stepping outside of one’s comfort zone. If you fear the idea of being involved in new activities, remember that life is short, and mediocrity will only continue to make you feel as if life is passing you by.

Company Culture

Every workplace has a culture in place, one that’s stated in their website, and another that’s actually the truth. The thing is your personality may not jive with the company culture, and it’s neither your fault nor the companies. Perhaps you thrive on high pressure and stringent rules, but your company is more laid back and spontaneous. It may not work for you, but it works for everyone else. Ask yourself if the culture is something you can adjust to or even embrace. And if not, it might be time to make a switch.

How to Make a Career Change Successfully

The ultimate key to success is to go through a career transition step-by-step to avoid making the wrong decision.

Advertising

1. Write a Career Plan

A career plan has a deadline for action steps that includes taking new courses, learning a new language, networking, or improving issues at work, among other career goals. [3] A career plan should be kept in sight because it will motivate you to keep pursuing the role.

You can learn how to set your career plan here.

2. Weigh Your Options

If you have a degree in accounting, write down five positions in this industry of interest to you. The good news is diplomas and degrees can be used for a variety of roles or career paths.

You don’t have to stick to what society holds as a top job. In the end, choosing the right role that will make you happy is priceless.

3. Be Real About the Pros and Cons

It is time to be honest about strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats in the job market that are impacting the current situation.

A SWOT Analysis of a career can include:[4]

  • Economic factors: Does the career path meet your financial expectations and needs?
  • Direct competition: Is this role in high demand?
  • Location: Will you need to move to a new position? Are you willing to relocate?
  • Achievements: To stand out from the competition, achievements like awards, committee involvement, freelance work, or volunteering is a recipe for success.
  • Education: Do you need to go back to school? Education can be expensive. However, online courses, webinars, or self-study are all options.

    A career blueprint is the first step to creating realistic goals. A person without goals will be disappointed without a clear direction of what to do next.

    4. Find a Mentor or Career Coach

    A mentor or a career coach that works in the desired position can share the pros and cons of working in the role. Here is a list of questions to ask a mentor:

    • What is required to be successful in the role?
    • What certification or educational development is needed?
    • What are the challenges of the role?
    • Is there potential for career advancement?

    A chat at a coffee shop with a mentor can change your mind about your desire for a career change.

    5. Research Salary

    Some people decide to change careers for a role that pays less or for extra benefits to make up for the difference.

    Just because a position pays more, doesn’t mean it will improve your quality of life. If you would need to move to a new location, you might want to check the cost of living in that new city.

    It can reveal the cities throughout the country that offer a higher salary for those that have an interest in relocating for work.

    6. Be Realistic

    If your goal is to move up into an executive position, it is time, to be honest about where you are in your career.

    Advertising

    For example, if boardroom meetings, high-level discussions about financials, or attending weekly networking events are boring, an executive role may not be right for you. If you are an introvert and working with people every day is nerve-wracking, you need to reconsider a job in sales.

    Ask yourself if you can work in this role for the next five years of your life. If other benefits that come with the role are enticing, there are other roles that will make you happy. You may need to take small steps as you switch careers in order to get into the position you really want.

    7. Volunteer First

    A person who wants to become a manager should take on volunteer opportunities to experience the reality of the position.

    Becoming a committee member to pursue a presidential opportunity can provide a perspective on leadership, maintaining a budget, and public speaking.

    Volunteer in a role until you are certain that it is the right opportunity. It’s also a great opportunity to learn new skills and gain experience. It’ll look great in your resume when you’re ready to apply for that position.

    8. Prepare Your Career Tools

    I recommend asking a boss, colleague, or mentor for career tools. If you prefer professional assistance, you can seek out resume writing assistance.

    Here is a list of things to consider when preparing career tools:

    Online Search

    Search your name online to see what shows up. I recommend searching for images that are on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, or other sites on a personal account. The last thing you want to realize is the job search is unsuccessful because there is unprofessional content you posted online.

    Prepare Your LinkedIn

    Recruiters conduct a LinkedIn search to see if the work experience is the same on a resume. In many instances, recruiters actually make first contact with potential employees on LinkedIn. Make sure your LinkedIn profile highlights skills and experiences that are relevant to the career or industry you want to get into. Remember to change the wording on LinkedIn from the resume, or it will appear there was no effort put into creating the profile.

    Portfolio

    A portfolio of work is recommended for people that work in the arts, writing, graphic design, and other fields. I recommend a portfolio online and one that is available in hand when attending job interviews or networking meetups.

    Cover Letter

    A good cover writer will always impress your potential employers. Here’s how to write a killer cover letter that stands out from others.

    Bottom Line

    It takes time to move towards a new career. Pay attention to the physical and mental signs to maintain your health. You deserve to work in happiness and come home stress-free. If you avoid the common mistakes people make, you will find a job and discover a role in a career field that is the best fit for your skillset.

    Master these action steps to complete a career change on your terms, so you can make the best decision for your future.

    What to Do When You Hate Your Job but Want a Successful Career

    Do you remember being invited to your job interview? Do you feel the same way about your job today? There’s nothing more soul-destroying than waking up Monday morning dreading the fact that you’re about to step back into slavery for a job you hate.

    You savor every minute at home before sadly turning the key in the lock to close your front door. From that moment on, you’re counting down the hours and minutes until it’s ‘TGIF’. Your anxiety might even start simmering well before your weekend is over.

    Your boss might be a bully or a manager who cannot actually lead and guide their team. Receiving mixed messages, being twisted and turned in multiple directions with none of the directives being for any real benefit can plummet your motivation and satisfaction so deep you’ll almost hit the Earth’s core.

    You love what you do and what you trained for, but any potential ounce of enjoyment has now completely evaporated. You feel dead in the water.

    You might be shocked at the suggestion that if you’re feeling these things, it’s actually a very good sign! You’re likely to be on the cusp of a significant cross-road that is going to change your life.

    Is Hating Your Job Normal?

    Do you feel horrible when you think about your job? Like everything in life, your job will always keep changing. Every day won’t be perfect. Some days will be challenging.

    However, you’ll always know when things are not right. You’ll know whether you are having a bad week or you are in a toxic situation. If you hate your job, you are not alone.

    A study conducted by Gallup found that 85 percent of the workforce in the world is unhappy.[1] If you hate your job, you need to examine where you are, whether you can improve your situation or if you should think of submitting a weeks notice of resignation to start a new job search.

    How to Cope When You Hate Your Job

    What to do when you hate a job that you once loved? The following key steps are going to set you back on the golden path to enjoying career success despite the muddy waters you currently find yourself in.

    1. Recognize the Signs of Discomfort

    Long gone are the days where we might expect to join a business or corporation and spend our lifetime working our way up into a cushy senior management role that will take care of us and our families for the rest of our lives. In fact, it’s actually risky business to even think this way.

    Pay rises are less frequent. Your skills and opportunities to expand your skills are now limited by staying within one job or organization. By definition, having a career means being on a continuous journey of development.

    Nowadays, the average person changes jobs in their lifetimes between 10 and 15 times. [2] Not changing job environments caps your capacity to grow your knowledge and strengthen your capabilities. You actually make yourself less employable.

    With the globalization of many businesses, you’re not only competing against people in your local neighborhood for your ideal role, you’re competing with folks from other cities, interstate, cross-country, and overseas.

    Advertising

    Some organizations are evolving with a constant focus on being innovative, taking calculated risks, and embracing new technologies — those that aren’t are falling to the wayside. If you don’t flow with the changing tides yourself, you could quickly find yourself stuck stagnant on a sinking ship with no lifeline.

    Monday morning blues are a key sign that you hate your job and it’s time to start thinking and doing things differently. What you are feeling is actually a blessing in disguise.

    2. Work with A Career Coach And/or Therapist

    When we really detest our daily grind, it’s high time to keep a lookout for the development of symptoms of anxiety and/or depression.

    Don’t just look for physical signs such as feeling greater and frequent fatigue, increased emotional eating, poor sleep. Loss of motivation, concentration and lower general interest not just in your work but in your personal life activities and relationships…these signs should raise alarm bells.

    Your friends and family might start reflecting they’re fed up of hearing about how your boss is constantly laying blame on you for their mistakes.

    Tolerance has worn thin listening to constant complaints about your doing the work of two people yet never confronting your boss about it. Continuing to play the broken record of your pain is not only sucking the lifeblood out of you but your friends and family as well.

    Don’t hold off working with a therapist and/or career coach when you notice these things. Both professionals will help you recognize the full picture of your experience and how it’s impacting you. Of greatest value is their helping you to start identifying changes you need to make and how to turn those into reality.

    When your emotional, physical and mental resources are drained from coping with your soul-destroying nine-to-five, your mindset is unlikely to have the optimal sensibility to hatch your escape plan.

    You’re likely to be operating from a fixed mindset of desperation than innovation and run the stakes of moving from one crappy job situation to another.

    Invest focus to rediscovering your worth, career interests and learning how to dream big again. Go deep in exploration of what your values are around what you want your work to give to you and mean to you.

    If working with a coach or therapist feels like an uncomfortable step for you, consider looking into undertaking a course that helps you work through these questions. Give yourself a gentle kick to ignite momentum in a different direction.

    3. Change Your Workspace

    Hostile or toxic work environments lead to competition, negativity, bullying, unrest, sickness, and high turnover. A toxic workplace is just one of the signs that you hate your job and can poison your personal and professional life.

    Working in a toxic workplace feels horrible. And it takes little effort for the workspace to become toxic. Why do workplaces become hostile and toxic? When leaders cultivate the culture of me-first or kill or be killed, the workplace becomes toxic.

    Advertising

    Other organizations start well and fall into the trap of chasing power or money. At times, a single employee can cause the entire workplace to become toxic. And it takes a lot of time to restore such an organization.

    The best thing that you can do for yourself and others working in a toxic environment is to get out.

    4. Don’t Be Stagnant for A Long Time

    Do your colleagues and loved ones congratulate you on your work anniversary? What comes to mind when they wish you the best in your career? You might start wondering what you’ve been doing over the past couple of years because you’ve been at a standstill. And you don’t like it at all.

    It’s quite difficult to identify stagnancy in a job. And when you do, you’ll start feeling like you are doing the same things over and over. Before you realize it, five years have passed and you haven’t developed yourself in any way. This eventually leads to a lack of passion for your job.

    You might feel stagnant at your job for several reasons. First, you could be the problem. If your job is easy and there’s no one to challenge you, you’ll find yourself going with the flow. Prolonged stagnancy can lead to burnout.

    To avoid this, you need to ensure that your career challenges and excites you. While your career shouldn’t be your life’s purpose, it should be something that inspires and motivates you.

    Regardless of your post, you’ll always need to be creative to move forward. You need to find simple ways to infuse creativity in your job. You can start organizing files or developing your design skills.

    5. Read Simon Sinek’s Find Your Why

    Reading Find Your Why by globally renowned organizational consultant and speaker Simon Sinek could be a transformational step in finding your way back to experiencing a successful and enjoyable career.

    Sinek and his co-authors explain there isn’t really a difference between having a professional why and a personal why.

    It’s just as much the reason why your friends and family love you as an expression of the work you put yourself into every day. It’s less about tasks and activities and really about what emotional and mental satisfaction doing those things brings you.

    What results is a beautiful tapestry of people not just experiencing an incredible product or service from you. You love what you do, create and get to give and they love you back for channeling that passion into that service and product they experience to benefit from.

    6. Try to Avoid Workplace Burnout

    When you have a lot of duties and responsibilities at work, you’ll have limited or no time for yourself and your loved ones. Working all the time can lead to stress and burnout.

    One of the popular types of burnout that you’ll experience is worn-out burnout. Worn-out burnout is usually experienced by employees who are always overworked with little or no positive outcomes.

    Burnout usually happens because the cycle is continuous and it starts taking from your professional life, relationships, personal life, and your health. You can avoid workplace burnout by balancing your working life and personal life.

    7. Consider Expanding Your Thinking and Entrepreneurial Flair

    You might think “I’ll always be an employee” and the thought of starting a business might scare the living daylights out of you. Even then, there is a strong chance you have monetizable talents that could, at the very least, swiftly direct your mindset away from the chilling notion of being stuck in your dead-end job for eternity.

    The thought of creating a product or service all by yourself could be dauntingly foreign. Doing something like this could feel like ridiculously fathoming a climb of Mt Everest when you don’t know the first thing about climbing or hiking!

    But once you start looking and having explorative conversations with different mindsets about ideas, instead of debriefing the horrible day you had yet again in your job, things will start to change. Like Sleeping Beauty being awoken from slumber by Prince Charming’s first kiss, you’ll start discovering a whole new way of thinking you won’t ever want to harness.

    Look at what skills you have to perform your current job. What skills have you acquired in the past that might simply have been dormant for a little while? Do you miss being able to exercise certain skills?

    When you have the discussion with your career coach, you’ll discover there are probably many more skills, knowledge and experiences you could even package and sell than you realize. However, remember: it’s not just about the money. It never should be.

    Even if you have been an administrator for many years, could the next step be writing introductory course administrators or young job seekers could benefit from? There is no better teacher or education platform to learn from than hands-on experience. It might be a side gig you create which you pitch to and deliver at high schools and job-seeking agencies.

    You might create a face-to-face workshop and/or an accompanying course that you create and sell on online education platforms such as Udemy or Teachable.

    Your course might inform and teach interview techniques and communication tips for working with managers and bosses. You might suggest what exercising initiative looks like and what individuals can do to help themselves feel comfortable and confident early in their jobs.

    There often is nothing more satisfying than learning and knowing that someone else’s challenges and problems were overcome because of wisdom and experience we could share with them. We all have something we can teach and offer people. What might you have to offer?

    8. Consider What You Want to Be Doing, Not Just What You’re Currently Doing

    It’s time to start letting the masses know what you’re capable of, not just in terms of what you have done but what you’re aspiring towards and charging forward to achieve.

    Advertising

    Global recruitment firm Robert Half explains how personal branding is essential to progress and enjoy a successful career.[3] Providing an impressive sounding resume and a cover letter are no longer enough.

    What we engage with and how we show up online and offline is taken into account more now than ever. So we need to be strategic.

    If you are looking for opportunities to work in overseas companies in your industry, you might consider researching best practices other off-shore companies are engaging in and writing your own short LinkedIn post about it.[4] Or you may simply look to post a link to what you have found and provide short critical evaluations about it.

    Start thinking about how you market yourself and stop leaving it to chance. Whilst many think social media is only for personal social items, consider how your engagement on these platforms portrays you to your audiences. Steer potential employers and business partners to see you as you want to be seen, not just as you are.

    9. Get Back on Track by Learning New Things

    When you are waking up each day with a sick feeling in your stomach knowing work duties call, there is a hard reality you have to face:

    It’s your responsibility to make the necessary changes. It is no one else’s responsibility to make you feel happy or satisfied with your work. At the end of the day, it’s yours.

    If you want to have a successful career, you have to take charge of the direction and types of experiences you want to have on your journey. Where do you want to go? How far and why? What training or opportunities might give you this? Is it executive coaching? Perhaps undertaking an MBA? Allow yourself to think laterally too.

    Let’s say project management is a skill set you need to learn, or incompetent boss snidely commented you would never make it without these skills. Could volunteering to crew for an event speaking company platform fast track your learning as to what’s involved? Financial forecasting, marketing, resource and supplies management, working with different team member personalities and managing client relations…you could never gain hands-on experiential learning like this you via a classroom or online course.

    The e-learning industry is forecast to reach $325USbillion by 2025.[5] With the quality of online learning gateways growing exponentially with very affordable costs of access to world-class teachers, golden opportunities to increase your skill set and knowledge are at your fingertips.

    Never has there been a better time for you to design a career pathway and forge an enriching educational journey that feeds not just your professional curiosities but personal interests too.

    Final Thoughts

    No successful career has ever involved dancing to the same tune. When you find yourself despising your job more often than not, change is nigh. By using just one of these tips above, you can rechart your course to have a successful career.

    In a short amount of time, you won’t only resuscitate the self-worth and recognition of our unique value that dead-end jobs can steal from you. You’ll enjoy deeper, prolonged levels of satisfaction, energizing self-discovery and opportunities to turn your career into a far more gratifying journey you could ever have imagined.

    The best part is that you don’t even have to wait to land the dream job. The journey itself will be magical.
