We all have that point in our days when work seems too difficult or too stressful. But when those days turn into weeks, and the week into a year of feeling like that, it may be time to consider a change—a whole new career, for example. It can be exciting and terrifying all at once to consider a change like that, but a little planning and a little saving can be great first steps.
It’s also helpful to realize that if you consider a job change, you’re not alone. Plenty of people across all age spectrums think about their jobs as stepping stones, or even just as a place that they’re killing time until they decide what they want to do. But while they’re working, they’re going through the concrete steps of what it takes to do that. Do they need to go back to school? Do they need to find financing? This graphic helps you consider what to do if a change is in the future for you.
