Going Through A Late Career Change? 10 Survival Tips

Forbes

Dec 11, 2017

Decades ago, the majority of people chose an industry and stuck with it through their entire careers, from college graduation through retirement. In today's market, where job-hopping, industry-wide downsizing, and "second act" careers are all prevalent, it seems that anything goes – and this can be a good thing for professionals who want to (or have to) change careers in their 40s or 50s. It may seem daunting to switch to a new industry after several decades climbing the ladder in a different one, especially if the change is abrupt and not by choice. However, it's certainly not impossible, and you may even find that you are happier, less stressed, and more fulfilled after you start your new career.

Many times, work and identity go hand in hand. What do you do when you aren't the wise voice of reason amongst the team? You embrace the unknown and allow yourself to be open. It's scary, it's uncomfortable, but it's the chance to explore another area of your life. Think back to childhood – what interested and captivated you that you could still do now? It's never too late to reinvent yourself.
