Looking for a career change? Here you will find essays and podcasts on career change for men 37-56.
Most men in the Autumn of their lives contemplate at least once a career change. The reasons are many and varied and there will be as many as there are men making such decisions. We are all unique in this.
There are many, many sites proposing career change options. Some give specific advice for moving from one career to another. For a teacher looking for a career change to IT specialist, for example.
The essays you will find here are more general than that. They will address the underlying reasons for seeking a career change. Some will look at the difference between a career and a job (everyone needs a job but not everyone needs a career). Others will consider the type of career you might need for financial reasons.
Most, though, will look at what you can do if you are looking for a career change but cannot change your situation. It is one thing to want to change, quite another to be able to change.
And that means you need to deal with disappointment and find some coping skills. Loss of career prospects is as real as any other loss. It may not be as wrenching as the loss of a loved one but the process of grief is as real.
Every essay is open to comments and you may add your thoughts uncensored, as long as you stay on topic. The topic is “looking for a career change”.
In fact, as long as you stay on topic I urge you to contribute. There is a form at the bottom of this page, before the list of posts begins, that you can use to write your own posts.
