Pursuing a new career path can be one of the scariest activities we will encounter on this journey we call ‘life’. A nerve wracking but exciting notion that can put the spring back into your step. You’re never too old, too young or my favourite.. ‘too qualified’ to reach for the stars and take the world by storm. Did you really come this far to only come this far?
The notion of studying at university at any age seems like a daunting prospect, but with flexible courses, both onsite and online that allow each and every student to study at their own pace. If you know that your dream job requires a tertiary degree but you aren’t quite sure of the courses, classes and prerequisites of the degree, a wonderful site called ‘course seeker’ will have you on your way to the first steps of your new journey. Course seeker offers tools to access tools which allows you to compare different courses across a variety of institutions and share these with friends and family who may be helping you to make the right choice. https://courseseeker.edu.au
If you know you’d like a career change, but aren’t sure on the path you must take, or even the job that's right for you, first consider your strengths, your areas for improvement, consider the barriers that have previously held you back in order to find the support to slowly break those constraints and lead you on your way to a life full of day-to-day excitement. How do we access such support? By networking of course!
Reach out to people who are doing what you want to do and ask if they have some time to talk about their career paths. Social media platforms such as LinkedIn and Seek are the perfect avenues for connecting with like-minded people who are currently practicing and working in the role that you can one day see yourself working in. Such platforms can also allow you to access the advice needed by industry professionals that will assist you in putting your best foot forward.
By pursuing a new dream, you’re saying yes to a life where you’re the driver, a life where you’re in total and complete control of your journey and a life that excites you each and every day. This starts with a career you love and feel passionate about. When you do what you love, you truly never work a day in your life.
