How can you change your professional life and make a success of your career transition? How can I be sure I won’t regret my choice of career change? How can I make sure that my impetus leads me to a job that suits me, in an environment where I can express my qualities?
More and more people are considering a career change. Some reconvert by choice to a passionate profession, while others do so out of necessity, due to the disappearance of their job or to more profound changes in the job market. This means that professional reconversion, which used to be almost taboo, will become part of everyday life for most of us, and skills assessment coupled with coaching in the practical implementation of professional reconversion is the way of the future!
Jobtimise helped me to see all the possibilities open to me in my career transition. For that, thank you very much!
How can I make a successful career change?
I take my time
You need to ask yourself the right questions before embarking on a career transition: your assets, the market, the resources you need to devote to your career transition, the professions that are recruiting and will continue to recruit for a long time to come, the support you will have in your career transition process, your network and its usefulness…
I talk to a lot of QUALIFIED people
Deciding quickly and going out on a limb is a huge risk in managing your career, and even more so if you’re looking to retrain. It’s an important decision that requires you to take your time . And to talk to as many people as possible
people who know what they’re talking about
(for example, at Jobtimise, all our coaches have successfully undergone professional reconversions in the past). So beware of discussing your projects with people who have no expertise; they risk giving you “wooden advice” despite their good will. Successful career transition requires exchanges with competent people.
A deep and solid balance sheet
A Bilan de Compétences should do more than make you aware of your strengths and “transposable” qualities. That’s the basic job. What’s more, we also need to support you in the realization of your project, and that’s the most complicated part, but also the most necessary in a time of crisis. Financing plans, feasibility of choices, timetables, jobs and companies recruiting, coaching on specific points. So you need to be there from the moment you think about your career change to the moment you make it happen.
Further training, financing and feasibility
In some cases, you may need to consider training to acquire the skills and knowledge required by employers. The good news is that there are plenty of funding schemes available(you can even finance a personal coach to do it with you). Training doesn’t have to be long. There are“certificate” or“bootcamp” formats, which are more concentrated and can be run in parallel with another activity. The world has changed and training systems have adapted. So there’s every chance you’ll find what you’re looking for.
