Making a Career Change

Unhappy with your current job? Thinking about changing roles or industries? Learn how to make a career change that leads to greater job satisfaction and professional growth. Stacey A. Gordon provides a roadmap that will help you navigate from where you are to where you want to be-even if you don’t know the exact destination. She reviews the steps you need to consider before switching roles or industries, so you can be confident you’re making the right move. Then she walks you through the best practices to set yourself up for success-such as exploring a new career while remaining in your current job, using your skills in a volunteer capacity, and leveraging your network to find more connections and opportunities in your desired field. Everyone has their own reason for wanting to make a career transition, and Stacey’s goal is to help you achieve yours.
