Making a Career Change to Find Your Dream Job
Sometimes, we find ourselves in a job or career that allows us to be financially stable and enjoy life outside of work, but the work itself is not what you ultimately envisioned yourself doing. Whether it be a position in an office, a part-time gig, or another position, people will take jobs that aren’t quite what they want for the promise of decent pay and hours that are “just OK.”
Although it is important to have a steady income to support yourself, your family, and still have the resources to enjoy yourself outside of the job, sometimes it becomes more important to enjoy your career. As the saying goes, “If you do what you love, you never work a day in your life.” And it holds true for most people.
You must ask yourself, “do I love what I’m doing?” If you’re unsure or the answer is “no,” then maybe it’s time to start seeking better job opportunities.
The Benefits of Seeking New Job Opportunities
Even if you don’t yet know what you want to do for your career, there’s no better way to start a change than by simply looking! Once you shop around and start to get an idea of what’s available, you can begin figuring out what you want to do.
One of the other great things about getting back on the job market is that once you start interviewing for new jobs, you will most likely start gaining confidence in yourself and your work history and become an interview pro! Even if you don’t land the first few jobs you interview for; there are still chances for networking.
The more that you get back out on the job market and interview, the more people you will meet who will probably be able to help point you in the direction you’re trying to go. Maybe one company doesn’t have room for someone with your skills and experience but could refer you to another company that does.

When you use Peoplepedia and create your page, use it as almost like a resume. Tell the world your past accomplishments, your skills and experience, and what career you hope to start. Even if someone can’t find you a job in that field, they may be able to offer you advice and guidance when you’re seeking new job opportunities.
