Are You Worried Changing Careers Isn’t An Option For You?
Many experienced, dedicated and accomplished professionals feel stuck or lost in transition at some point in their career.
- Are you perpetually unhappy with your career choice or current position?
- Do you worry about being stuck in an unsatisfying profession, position or company and wish you could find a way to make a change?
- Do you dream about holding a job you love, but can’t see how it could ever happen?
You may believe it is too late to make a career change or that your opportunity has passed.
Perhaps you wake up dreading your work, but aren’t sure what steps to take to feel more satisfied and fulfilled in your career.
Do you want to feel happy and proud of your profession while still providing yourself and your family with a comfortable lifestyle?
Most Workers In the U.S. Are Not Engaged At Work
When you feel unsatisfied or stuck in your career, it is easy to look around and believe that everyone else is happily moving forward.
But, according to a Gallup poll, two-thirds of American employees are not engaged at work. Countless individuals are unhappy or unsatisfied in their careers, but feel pressures – both internal and external – to remain in their current positions.
You may have been encouraged to pursue a stable, secure career.
However, now that you’ve achieved that, you don’t feel connected to or passionate about your work. Or maybe your parents have done the same work for 20, 30 or even 40 years, and, because you haven’t seen a career crisis before, you feel like your dissatisfaction is a flaw within yourself.
If you’re unhappy with your career choice and want to make a change, you are not alone.
Changing careers is very common these days. In many cases it doesn’t even make sense to keep the same career for 20 years. The good news is that career transitions counseling can help you adapt, transition and feel confident as you apply your skills to a new career.
You Can Feel Confident While Changing Careers
It can be hard to see the forest for the trees when you are having a difficult time changing careers.
You may feel mired down in workplace depression, to the point that it is limiting your ability to see and take the first step toward pursuing a more satisfying profession. At Dynamic Transitions, we emphasize a compassionate, supportive environment to help you take actionable steps toward a more fulfilling career.
In our sessions we use concrete, strategic and efficient methods to help you develop the skills you need to find a career that fits who you are.
If you aren’t sure where to begin, we offer career tests and initial assignments to help us pinpoint possible career options. We use proven techniques to take quick, effective strides toward your career goals. Unlike traditional talk therapy, you don’t have to wait and hope we discover your ideal career over time. Rather, you can gain clarity and hope immediately as you feel like your professional goals are understood.
Changing careers can be a difficult process, and you have to be motivated if you wish to achieve your career transition goals.
While it is exciting to think about how much better you will feel in your new position, getting there takes work, dedication, focus and a willingness to come out of your shell. But, when you are committed, you can take an active role in shaping and developing your own, long-term solutions.
The average U.S. worker changes jobs at least 5-7 times.
Our goal is to help you develop a variety of career-related strategies and skills you can apply to different fields and throughout your professional life, both here in New York and wherever your career takes you. Part of feeling satisfied in your career is understanding yourself, your professional goals and the career strategies you need to reach those goals. We can simplify the process of changing careers by helping you recognize your strengths, the obstacles that have stood in your way in the past and the steps you need to take to move forward in your career.
You may feel an initial fear, sadness or disappointment as you contemplate or take steps toward changing careers. We understand there is a loss or change that you need to deal with. But, at the same time, we are happy and excited for you and the opportunity you have. It takes courage to reach out and say that you want to make a change. We like to think we’re holding onto hope for you, encouraging you and supporting you until you are ready to embrace your situation.
