PLANNING YOUR NEXT CAREER MOVE

When thinking about any big step in our lives it’s usually best to start with a plan; “What do I want and how am I going to get it?” This isn’t always such an easy thing to do, so to help you figure out what to do next, here are some things to consider:

  • Do you stay in the same industry in a similar type of role?
  • Maybe you look at a different industry sector but remain in a similar role?
  • Do you break out of your comfort zone and look at a complete change of role and industry?

Whether you are planning to stay in the same type of role or are looking to overhaul your career, it’s important that you are able to recognise a good opportunity when it comes along and consider all available options. Once you have considered there, it will help you to write your CV with that angle in mind – take a look at our CV writing tips here.

Must haves

We all have different motivations and inspirations. Work means different things to each and every one of us. So, when making a choice about your next career move you need to think about what is right for you and consider the wider impact on your lifestyle. You may want to think about:

  • Your home life and commitments – perhaps talk to your loved ones to evaluate your joint lifestyle goals
  • Work preferences – What you want to do, who with, what time etc.
  • Your financial requirements
  • The work-life balance your new role should provide

Prioritising all these factors will show you what aspects of a role you may be willing to compromise on if a great opportunity arises.
