6 Unconventional Career Change Tips (2)

Unconventional Tip #4
Unconventional tip number four is to make sure you understand that the reason for disatisfaction with a career usually lies within. A lot of people report a bad boss, bad company, bad economy or bad work environment as their reason for job dissatisfaction when in reality they're just ready for a change. Many people simply feel the need to pursue a mid-life career change in order to experience new things and to grow. There's nothing wrong with this. Just make sure you know why you're seeking a career change. If you blame a career change on factors not truly responsible for your desire to change careers you may find yourself in a career with a great boss, with good company, in a good economy that still doesn't satisfy you.

Unconventional Tip #5
The fifth tip is to not be hasty. Ever heard the maxim "haste makes waste"? Well it applies to making a career change as well. Make sure you thoroughly explore your feelings of dissatisfaction with your current career before you start looking for solutions. One of the biggest mistakes that career changers make is that they rush into a career changing expecting their frustrations to be miraculously resolved. Many times these individuals find themselves in a new career experiencing the same frustrations as they experienced in their previous career.

Unconventional Tip #6
The sixth unconventional mid-life career change tip is to recognize that you need both a sound career plan and financial plan to have a successful mid-life career change experience.

Career planning in and of itself is not enough to ensure a successful career change. Most people pursuing a career change cannot control all of the factors affecting future job satisfaction. In reality there are likely going to be aspects of a new career that are not satisfying.

Financial planning by itself is not enough to ensure a successful career change. While many of us proclaim to be motivate by money, very few of us actually feel inspired by money to work at a job that is not fulfilling.

I agree with some previous comments posted. Specifically the comments centered about doing what you love and money. Granted, you need to be realistic about your expectations (being a fireman never going to pay the same as CEO of Fortune 400 company), but do not sell short being happy. People that are really, really good at something are a) happy and b) usually well compensated because they are so good at their jobs.

So basically when considering a mid-career change it's all about the money. Correct me if that's not what just about every one of these "unconventional" tips covered. Trust me, it's not about the money. It's about downsizing your lifestyle so that you can make a change towards a "career"/job/opportunity that is based on doing something spiritually, emotionally, mentally fulfilling rather than filling up that bank account. Learning to live a frugal life is the key to long-term career satisfaction because then your "job" is no longer about the "money" but about pursuing your passion. This was a useless, poorly titled article that regurgitates a bunch of tired old maxims on financial planning.

Money is not all but money is very important when you consider career change or job change. You can be financially secured and rewarded in your current position but feel no hope and no chance to advance. Would you still stay, or take another job that gives you same amount of money or even a little lower but more challenging? I just cannot pursuade myself to take that new position if no financal gain. Career=passion+money for what you do. You cannot let one missing when chase another.

This article was worthless! It's all about making the most money without consideration of being happy about your job. In other words, you may not like getting up to go to work each day but look at the bright will be wealthy at retirement. What a waste of happiness in your life.
