How to change your career path after a Barnet accident at work compensation claim
It may seem unfair that people are expected to know at 16 or 18 what they want to be for the rest of their lives, but once you have made this decision in school, you tend to stick with it for as long as you can. After school many people head straight to university, where they work to specialise in the subject that they chose at 16, whilst others start on their career path right away. Ten years down the line, it is normal to suddenly feel disillusioned with the path that you have chosen, and it is never too late to decide to change your career path. Sometimes something like an accident or major life event will prompt this change, and you should welcome this as well.
- Think about what you can do. If you are now suffering from a disability or reduced abilities then you should think carefully about what you can do, what you can do easily and what you are unable to do. This will help you to choose a job more sensibly, and one you can be happy in for a long time.
- Think about what you want to do. If you are going to leave your job to do something else, why not make it something that you are going to enjoy? This way you should be able to see this new opportunity as something to look forward to, and which will move you forward in a positive way.
- Speak to an adviser. There are careers advisers for everyone, not just teenagers looking for their career path. Find an adviser and find out more about the jobs you are interested in doing, to get help with making yourself the perfect candidate for a job in the field you are interested in.
- Speak to your employer. If you are already employed, speak to your employer about whether there are any opportunities coming up that they can recommend you for, as this will help you to get your foot on the ladder.
