When starting to look for a new career or occupation, stay open to new ideas and opportunities. You may need to take a slight diversion from the direct career path into the position you may have wanted originally, but it could still take you to the place you ultimately wanted to get to.
You may need to update your current skills or abilities before you change direction or simply take a lesser role which leads into the specific job role you wanted originally. Each of these options are pathways into your new career.
Think of the type of work that suits you and your lifestyle, your family and your needs when wanting to change or update your career. You are in control and you make the decisions as to how you want your future to be.
