The New Year is a time when people reflect on the past and set new goals for the future. Often these new goals involve work, whether it’s doing better, getting promoted, tackling a problem, getting a better work-life balance or 101 other things. We’ve found this is a time when people often resolve to find a new job, so we thought we’d help.
Regardless of career profile, seniority or experience the most common issue raised in one to one career coaching is people’s uncertainty about what job to move to next. We often hear phrases like:
- I’m in a rut but don’t know what to do next
- I want a change but don’t what I can do beyond my current role
- I’m new to work and there’s simply too much choice – I can’t focus
Our focus is always on developing your self understanding and personal insight through reflection and discussion with people you trust, and then applying this to the market. However, we know that sometimes a clear framework really helps to focus the mind and make decisions. We’ve taken key “paid for” pages from the website and made them free, to give people at a career crossroads a structure that works. This should help you to narrow down the choices and tackle a market that can be overwhelming, especially when emotions get in the way. Good luck with the search. Feel free to contact us if you have any queries.
