The new series of The Apprentice has begun and the message from Lord Sugar in last night’s episode was ‘use what you are good at.’
This is an important message for all those wanting to pursue a career change.
When you are wishing to pursue a career change, remember that your past experiences are relevant and can help you out in your later career. Use what you are good at by identifying your transferable skills and take these skills from one job to another. Not only will you then give yourself a head start, you will also be in a great position for developing further skills.
Also, remember that previous contacts and colleagues may be able to help you in the future. Do not leave them behind when you are pursuing a career change as you never know when you may need them again. Ensure you don’t burn any bridges and leave on good terms. In doing this, you will soon develop a very strong and supportive network to help you succeed in your future career path.
So, if you are thinking about changing career, use what you are good at, keep in contact and be proud of what you have achieved.
