Thinking of Adult Retraining To Change Careers?
Recent suggestions would have us believe that over 30 percent of British men and women are at best bored with their job, and at worst they have so much stress they find it difficult to sleep at night.
How Do You Make A Start?
Under the circumstances, (and you want to get the heck out from under those as quickly as you can!) it's not surprising that many of us consider retraining to move our lives in a new direction.
And we're very good at creating obstacles in our heads - How do we know if we'll manage? What if we don't actually like doing that job either? Will there be any real opportunities to get the work we want?
Seize The Moment...
The time has come to give ourselves a reality check! Because let's get real - we've got at least a decade or probably more in some job.
Don't we deserve to find a career that will bring us greater rewards? One that offers room for personal growth and the opportunity to progress.
Think what it would be like to know that you have the respect of the people working around you, you take pleasure in carrying out your daily tasks, and the work you do really means something. Add to that getting paid to do what you most enjoy doing, and you have the perfect reasons to stop procrastinating and retrain NOW - as the saying goes "Because you're worth it!"
...And Make It Happen
It could be that you've long nursed a passion for a particular career, but always told yourself it wasn't possible because there were too many obstacles to overcome. Well maybe now you are ready to cast aside those obstacles and move on with your life. Sure you may have to study alongside a full-time job, but hard work won't harm you.
Just remember it's all temporary and you'll be absolutely fine. People who have a passion for the work they do are usually much better company because they've moved away from being 'under the circumstances' where the victims of life live.
That's not to say retraining is a piece of cake. But it's unlikely to be the mental mountain many build it up to be - remember it's a very well trodden path. To get you started, we've put together a range of career options. We think the information and guidance offered will prove invaluable to you in your pursuit of a better job.
