Every career journey has many turning points, where the questions seem more plentiful than the answers.
- Should I stay or should I go? I’ve been at this job for a while. It’s not bad, but it’s not great. What do I do now?
- Everything has changed. I loved this job for years, but new management, a reorganization or a life change means I need to consider whether a job or career change is necessary. Where do I start?
- Is this what I want to do for a living? I’ve been trained for this job, I’ve been doing it for a while, but I’m not happy. Should I switch careers and find something else?
- I’m ready for something new, but my boss likes me where I am. How do I move forward without rocking the boat?
- I need to do a complete rethink of my career. For whatever reason—a layoff, a retirement, changed family circumstances or just plain old burnout—I have to start from scratch. Where do I begin?
- Something is off, but I’m not even sure what the problem is. I just know I’m not happy right now. How do I figure out what the problem is, and then how do I fix it?
When you hit one of these career intersections, it can seem like it’s an impossible problem to solve—too many options, too many risks. Yet these career crossroads provide an opportunity to find new paths, new strengths, new passions.
