Starting to investigate a new job option will often be a laborious task,
fraught with bad and inconsistent advice...
Because of the current financial climate, many ordinary people are seeking to protect their futures through training into an alternative career.
If you're pondering what career to take - begin your journey with our breakdowns of many different career-paths.
It's simple - just click on the career option to get going...
In Britain today it's currently thought that over three in every ten working adults are at most uninspired by what they do, and many admit they've reached the stage of being right at the end of their tether!
But there are so many training courses to choose from - and so many qualifications and accreditations to know about - so it's sometimes challenging working out where to begin!
And we're very good at creating obstacles in our heads - Will we be able to cope? Is the new career going to be any better than the old one? Is there any work available in the sector we're looking at?
We need to override our doubts with a lot more positive. We know if we're honest we've still got many years of work to go.
Why shouldn't we take a chance and go for a new profession? One that offers room for personal growth and the opportunity to progress. Just think how you would feel if each day you went to a job that you really enjoy, and everyone appreciated the work you did for them - for most of us, it would be a bonus simply to feel appreciated.
Add to that getting paid to do what you most enjoy doing, and you have the perfect reasons to stop procrastinating and retrain NOW - as the saying goes "Because you're worth it!"
Did you always see yourself building a successful career, but circumstances and life in general just seemed to get in the way? (How many times have we heard that old chestnut...?)
Maybe it's the right time now to push through the challenges; remember - action cures fear!
You will of course have to motivate yourself if you're tired after a day at work - but that's not really a hardship as the pros definitely outweigh the cons. Individuals who are enthused about their work most often are well-adjusted, healthy and more vibrant than the nay sayers who just can't seem to understand it's down to them.
Now career changing isn't a walk in the park. But there are tried and tested methods that have worked for others, and could clearly work for you. Click on any of the career categories featured here for an introductory tutorial.
We feature many types of careers and professions, and give guidance on what it takes to get into them. It's a good idea to save this site in your 'favourites' file - a tip to do this quickly is type Ctrl D. Take the time to read through any relevant sectors and see if there's a match - and then seek out various training possibilities by referring to individual featured sites.
Your new career really is achievable if you set your mind to it. Focus on the benefits it will bring to your life and not the work it will take to get there - then retraining will be part of the pleasure!
