There are many students who out of dissatisfaction with their current jobs, are looking for changing their career fields. What happens actually is that students most often select a career after their secondary education based on the advice given by their parents, teachers and friends. Many students even take up a career option due to peer pressure. However, later in their academic career, they find it difficult to manage. Such students either continue the same field out of pressure from their parents and society and slowly move towards frustration or they end up in changing their career. The youth of the country has to select a career at a very early stage and they easily get influenced by the advice given to them. At an early age of 14-15, many students are not able to understand their skills and talents and this leads to them careers that are not made for them.

For any Confusion Regarding Career Paths – Take here: Psychometric Career Tests including Ideal Career Test

What a student wants to become after he grows up requires much attention and a careful thought. One can’t decide his/ her career based on limited awareness and information. For deciding one’s career, a student must need to first assess his own skills and match them with his passion. This will help him to shortlist few career options which will be suitable for him and that can give him growth throughout his life. However, most of the students do not spend time on assessing their skills and jump on their career decision. This leads them to change their career in future to avoid any frustration.

However, the process of changing career can be made easier with an expert help. Students need to take one step which they missed at an earlier stage. They can follow the following steps in order to not make a mistake while making a career change:

  • Why do you want to change your career?

The first thing that you should have a strong answer is the reason for changing your career. There could be problems coming up at your workplace or you may not be able to follow up with your studies. There could be reasons such that you realize that you have no interest in the current career field. There could be several other reasons, but you should be very clear about them and should have no doubt regarding your reasons. You make take help from your friends and family at this point and they can help you to find out the reasons of dissatisfaction from your current career.

  • Will it solve the problem?

Not all the problems have a solution to change the career. It is quite possible that you can solve the problem while remaining in the same career field. Often times, working professionals can solve the problem after changing their jobs. Students can solve the problem by selecting the right electives in their course or picking up the right activities taking place in the college. Changing one’s career is a big decision. You should be ready to face several challenges that come with it. If you are a working professional, you need to complete studies in a new field and then start looking for a job as a fresher. Even for a student, it is difficult to leave one course in the mid-way and start a new one. This is always a risky option and should be taken only when you are fully confident about it.

  • What skills do you have?

Once you have made your mind of changing your career, you first need to assess what skills do you have and what career will be appropriate with those skills. You can take help from psychometric tests here which explore your talents and skills through a series of aptitude, logical reasoning, situational judgment questions and maps your skills to different career fields that can be suitable for you. This is the one step that you actually needed to take at the beginning of your career so that you don’t end up in the wrong choice. However, at this crucial stage, it is advised to not follow the same mistake and take an informed decision.

  • What additional skills you need to acquire?

You can take career counselling session followed by a psychometric test. A career counsellor will not only guide you about the career that will be fit for you but will also help to analyze what kind of skills can be important for you. He can guide you about short courses that can be taken so as to enhance your skills. With the improved skill set, you can enter the new career field with full confidence and vigor. Also, improving your skill set as per the latest trends can help you fulfill the gap that you have created in another career field. In addition, a career counsellor can tell you how you can use the experience that you have gained in your current career as your strength and take a step forward in your new career.

  • How to pursue with a career change?

The last step is to pursue the new career. You need to take complete information of the new career. The study pattern, the job structure and the potential challenges should be duly searched upon before starting the career. Also, you can take information about colleges and universities and the procedure to take admission in them from your career counsellor. For working professionals, it would be better if they consult a recruiting consultant so that they can guide them properly about the job profiles that would be suitable for them according to their requirements.
