1) The salaries aren’t good enough in my industry: Salary is a huge motivator for most people. This is the reason many people consider a change of career. However, if you enjoy the job you do it might be best to stay in your industry and look to progress your career within it.
2) I’m fed up with my role: Have you come to the conclusion that only a change of career can rejuvenate your work life? Well, this isn’t always the case. It might not be the role that is the issue. Ask yourself: Is it your Manager who’s the issue? Is it the employer who’s the issue? Often a manager or company can make you doubt your role and resent your job. Picture yourself at another company and if you see yourself in a similar role, then it might just be a case of finding a new job in a different company.
3) There really aren’t many opportunities within my industry/role: If you enjoy your job, but you struggle to find any roles within your profession then this can be disheartening. Try to remain positive and be as proactive as possible. There’s no point moving away from a role that you are good at and enjoy. If you’re in a sector that’s on the way out, then it would definitely be worth reconsidering or adapting your skillset to something more future proof.
