Well, I think WHY people want to change is a really important question.
Because a lot of people work at things that they actually don't love. They just sort of ... they live from Friday night until Sunday night, and then they work from Monday morning until Friday night.
And one of the things that impresses me about people these days is, firstly, you don't actually have to have a degree in the area you want to work in. You can study what you like, what a passion is, and you can work at something else.
Conversely, you can study at something that you think gives you a really good foundation. You might do Economics, but you might want to be in Human Resources or you might want to be in Real Estate Sales, or something totally different.
So, these days, I think it's important to try and learn, for a foundation for your work, and realise that the first qualification might only be the basis and you might go on to two or three different qualifications, and the same goes for jobs.
So, the people I see, who are best at doing what they do at work, are the people who are passionately and emotionally involved in what they doing. I mean, you're in the IT area, and people who are in IT - they speak a different language. You know, they talk code to each other and no-one else can understand what they're talking about. If they're in the public service, they can talk about a whole range of things by using SD4 and KR1 and no-one else knows what they're talking about, because they're so involved emotionally, they love what they're doing. [And] I think that's the best job you can have, ever, is one you're just busting to get out of bed, because you've been thinking about your job, really excited by it and motivated by it, those people don't get tired by going to work. They get pumped by going to work.
So, if I think you are looking to change your career, totally, change to something that you really love.
And change to something that you feel you'd be really good at.
