Career Transition

Career change statistics suggest that the average woman makes a career change approximately 5-7 times during their career.

.

With an ever increasing number of different career choices, about 1/3 of the total workforce will now change jobs every 12 months. By the age of 42 you will probably already have had about ten jobs.

.

One key factor in successfully changing careers will be your networking abilities. People in your network may be able to give you job leads, offer advice and information about a particular company or industry, and introduce you to others to expand your network.

.

Changing careers is a major life decision that can get overwhelming at times. Find a mentor who can help you through the rough patches. Your mentor may also be able to help you by taking advantage of his or her network. A mentor doesn’t have to be a highly placed individual, though the more powerful the mentor, the more success you may have in using that power to your advantage.
