Counselling and Career Development

Change your career

There could be a number of reasons you would want to change your career:

  • You are experiencing challenges related to your planned career path. For example, you are working in an environment that is not conducive to your career development or you are no longer engaged with your work. Your planned career path may also present challenges such as requiring full-time study that you cannot afford.
  • You no longer feel connected with your planned career path. For example, how you perceive your career has changed, or your personal circumstances have changed and you now need to adjust your career planning accordingly.
  • You may have started working directly after high school and have even completed some qualifications and training related to your current position. Now you want to return to your initial career dream.

Ask yourself

  1. Why do you want to change?
