If during lockdown you have been contemplating a career change then this blog is for you.
The past months have created more uncertainty than most of us have ever experienced before.
They have also generated unprecedented changes in the ways that we live and work.
One of the benefits of remote working is opening up a massive opportunity in terms of careers.
Perhaps lockdown has facilitated your desire to do something different, for example, to meet your other responsibilities.
Research correlates a number of factors with career satisfaction. Some of my work involves helping clients to diagnose what careers would work best for them in providing career satisfaction.
The starting point is work values. I would advise that you brainstorm your work values and then prioritise the top 5. For example, mine are health and wellbeing, learning and development, results, connection and freedom.
Your next step is to consider some career options that come to mind that would meet your top 5 work values.
You may then research say the 3 career options that you think of. Perhaps one stands out as unrealistic and one just feels right. You can then start to think about the gap between where you are now and what you want to do in your career. Perhaps training or coaching is the next step.
I work through a number of other predictors of career satisfaction with you to help you to establish the best career fit for you.
