If you have decided when thinking of your new years resolutions that this is going to be the year that you turn your career around and follow your dreams, then you are probably wondering how to get started and go about it.
Having the drive and determination to stick with it is important, as there are likely to be a few obstacles to overcome but stick at it and the rewards are huge. Having a job that you enjoy is important for a happier and more fulfilled life.
So, what is the first thing to do? If you have already got your mind set on a particular career, then do some research into it. Think about the current skills and talents that you have and how you will use them in this new job. It may be that you need certain qualifications, so look into how you can achieve this. There are a lot of online courses that you can fit into your life to gain qualifications, or there may be a local college that will help you with this.
It is also good to look into the jobs and see if you can get any work experience. There are also recruitment agencies that specialise in certain jobs and careers such as this procurement recruitment agency, Talent Drive, so look into these as well and start to get your information out there and register your interest. Simply talking to people and networking is a great way to get into a certain career.
