Career Change ?

Recommended Posts

Anyone here had a career change before ?

I'm getting sick of my current job nature, or the entire industry...cannot see the light anymore

thinking of switching to hospitality management...but dunno how to go about doing it.... :lol:

also worried about whether i'm too old to switch :wub:

I did, from technical to sales, to different industry, then back to the old thing again :lol: it was fun, but the price to pay is high.

Why dun you find out more about hospitality & tourism industry by taking up some part time courses first? There are quite a few subsidized by the government mah.

If you ever thought of starting a company or run a business, also do consider a entrepreneur course too, at least it gives you some overview about running a business, better than longpiak here and there right?

i agree with you. unless u have a lot of savings or can afford to try out. but most of my peers and me are with study loans. we have to slog it out first before considering.. !!

when you reach a certain part of life, you would think of career change no matter how much you love your current company.... 

reason? 

as you grow, you have more to worry, more burden, more people you need to take care of. 

But this becomes a problem when you do know where to go and how to go. 

Solution? 

  • Mix with more people. Someone not already your friends. 
  • Talk to new friends
  • Join seminars or workshops

These might help!

There’s many choices too.. these days so easy with starting businesses online, just need to learn new skill sets like digital marketing well.. That said, you can always go back to the classic sales/entrepreneurship type of careers like insurance sales, or Property Agent career

If you’re self-disciplined that is..
