Tips For Making A Career Change in 2020

According to a new survey from Fiverr and YouGov., nearly 6 in 10 U.S. workers are looking to change something about their work or career in 2020. People want more flexibility, the opportunity to travel and work remotely, and to work in a field that they are passionate about. So where do you begin? We asked one of our top-rated sellers for advice on making a career change in 2020.

Charmaine Pocek is a Fiverr seller who has made almost $3M selling a variety of services including interview tips, resume editing and building, cover letter consulting and more. Prior to her work as a freelance career consultant, she worked as a recruiter for a top hospital Houston. Check out Charmaine’s tips below!

Tip #1: Think long and hard about what you’re passionate about and what is important to you.

Our likes and dislikes change a lot over time, whether it’s the food we eat, the music we listen to or even the people we choose to hang out with. That’s why before making a change, it’s always a good idea to reflect on what you feel strongly about in your life and career. Think about what you like to do outside of work, but also think about the things you like about your job and how those could transfer elsewhere. Even if the company you work for or the work you do isn’t something you want to continue with, maybe there are aspects about it that you enjoy and want to hold on to. 

Tip #2: Set small goals for yourself and reward yourself when you meet those goals.

Let’s use the photography example from above. You may not be able to quit your job and travel the world taking photos just yet, but that said, if that’s what you’re looking to do, make an effort to travel more and take photos on weekends. Whatever your end goal is, whether it’s to change the company you work for, increase your flexibility at work or work remotely more often, every time you muster up the confidence to ask your boss to work from home, or every time you send out your resume to a new company, reward yourself. One thing I did for myself this year was to buy myself a Pandora bracelet. Throughout the year I have set small goals for myself and whenever I meet a goal, I will buy a charm for that bracelet. It might take me years to fill it up, but once I do I can tell you, it’ll be the most rewarding feeling. 

Tip #3: Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and just do it. 

“Do or you do not. There is no try.” Those words were spoken by not Socrates or Aristotle, but rather Yoda or really, George Lucas. But what they really mean is that you can prepare yourself all you want to make a change, whether it’s your company or the way you’re currently working, but you’re not going to know until you… just do it. And that’s always the hardest part. Whether you’re starting a new diet or writing a book, it’s always the first day, the first page that’s the hardest. But you did it. You committed and you need not try, you just have to “do.”

One of the biggest tips is to have a safety net and Plan B in place just in case things don’t go as planned. Next, don’t put all your eggs in one basket while transitioning. Finally, take your time to get set up and don’t be in a rush to expand as this will put you in a bind should something out of the blue surface.
