How to change the profession in 30 years
The reasons for changing the career direction can be very different: frustration in the profession, lack of sane prospects, low earnings, fatigue or just curiosity and a thirst for new sensations. In any case, you need to change your profession only after you weigh all the pros and cons and prepare a "spare airfield".
As a rule, to this age people already reach certain heights in the chosen profession, have work experience, recommendations, attractive resume. Unfortunately, very few thirty-year-olds can call themselves completely free from any obligations. Family, repair in an apartment, mortgage or a loan for a new car - all this requires constant financial injections, so simply write a statement of care and go to a free search, most likely, will not work.
If you seriously decided to change the scope of activities, you must secure yourself a financial reserve for the first time. Calculate your spending for the last month and multiply the received amount by six. You will need to postpone the stock of money for about six months of the usual life. If you expect to save, this is not an excuse to reduce the amount of savings - let them be better for a longer period.
Having provided the rear, you can move on to finding a new job. If you want to dedicate yourself to something completely new, be prepared for the fact that you will need to acquire additional knowledge. Note that at thirty years of study is much more difficult than in youth, so you need to be completely confident in your abilities. Try to start studying the future profession even before you leave - this can be done at evening courses, enrolling in an institution of higher learning to a correspondence department or by finding a course on the Internet.
Starting from scratch in 30 years is psychologically difficult, because next to you in the new job will work for people much younger than you. It is likely that you will have to obey a person who is several years younger, and this can lead to additional stress. Do not worry much because your boss is younger than you, take it as an additional incentive to accelerate your progress on the career ladder.
If you do not fully understand all the nuances of your future work, you can sacrifice your vacation by spending it on acquaintance with a new field of activity. It is quite possible to negotiate with an unpaid internship with a future employer, and as a result you will get a new experience without losing your current place.
Quitting, try to maintain a good relationship with the former bosses. It is possible that you will not like the new work, so do not burn all the bridges, depriving yourself of the opportunity to return to your old career track. Even if you do not manage to take up your previous position, you, at least, can count on good recommendations.
