Thinking of Changing Careers? Here’s How to Get Started.

By Ford R. Myers,
President of Career Potential, LLC

If you’re seriously considering making a career change, it will be important to go through some preliminary “internal exercises” to discover what type of role would be best for you. Here at Career Potential, LLC, we use at least seven exercises that are very powerful. These are explained in detail, with multiple examples, in my book, Get The Job You Want, Even When No One’s Hiring. With the guidance of a skilled career consultant, these exercises can generate a high level of clarity, focus and direction.

As a career changer, you would also be well-advised to take a battery of “formal” career assessments and personality profiles (such as The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and The Strong Interest Inventory). These will help you identify some new career options and narrow-down the possibilities to a carefully thought-out list of initial job choices. Changing careers is a big decision, so it’s wise to pursue this sort of deliberate, logical process – as opposed to just jumping impulsively from one career to another.

From these exercises and assessments, you can start to eliminate the “pipe dreams” and focus on the career paths and work environments that fit best with your strengths, preferences and experiences.

Topic: Compensation Negotiation – The Rules of the Game

Location: Montgomery County Community College, Blue Bell, PA

Why is it that people have such a difficult time successfully negotiating their compensation? The reason we can’t or won’t negotiate is not because we’re incapable of doing so, but rather because we just don’t know how. No one ever taught us “the rules of the game.” This is a very practical, “real world” program that focuses on mastering the rules of the salary negotiation game – a game that can actually be fun, as well as financially rewarding!
