Many emails I receive about finding work concern perceived barriers: age, health, track record, network.

If you nod your head at any of these, then you may feel a struggle to get a foot in, or to beat people already in the fields you are considering – people who already have the experience and skills for the field.

Below are 3 ideas to help you

If you take away nothing else from what I say, please do these things. They will give you anchor points, and prevent regret at not having dared when you go to bed at night.
What I say below applies to both senior and less experienced professionals.

 


1. Don’t do it alone

  • Start to surround yourself with others who also want change/escape.
  • Start to meet and spend time with different types of people.
  • Find a mentor, sponsor, soundboard, vent.

What this gives you


Different ideas, different connections, accountability. Someone to bounce ideas with and get feedback from when you need to be discreet. Facts instead of assumptions on how you are perceived and where you need to focus (this is really important. Isolation is not constructive). Which means you move forward faster.

 

2. You MUST take action and try different paths quickly to find out what you want, and which skills you need to display more strategically.

Don’t over-think; do. Analysis-paralysis leads nowhere, and time is running.

In a field you’re considering

  • 
volunteer at an event
  • start observing who is posting online and start sharing/liking/commenting
  • shadow someone in a role you are interested in for half a day
  • write a short post online, to test the response, to start associating your name with certain topics

What this gives you


You step into different worlds, spark ideas, cross off possibilities.

3. Focus on people, not jobs

Recruiters, CVs and job sites can all help over time. But the most power already lies in your existing network. So focus on building better relationships with the people you already know, and in turn with whom they know.

What this gives you

Fantastic insight into your current reputation, and who is most likely to help you (so you know which areas to work on). Awareness of upcoming jobs. A stronger position.

It also keeps your energy up – this is critical since a career shift can challenge your confidence.

(Next time I will post my thoughts on concrete things to do to get cash flow and strengthen your position while you are working around these barriers, and how I think you can do that.)
