Tips & Steps
On Changing & Transitions In the Workplace!
STEP ONE - Considering a Change: Exploring Your Options
Keep everything you want for the transition together and not scattered.
Don't have the most important things you need for the next job in different places, keep them together in one place.
Know what’s available to you.
Multiple companies offer a variety of job relocation services to people who want to relocate jobs. Make sure you take time to know what is available to you.
Keep what's known to yourself.
If you plan on switching jobs full on not just locations, DO NOT tell anyone. Not any close friends that you work with either. You don't want you employer to know about considering a change. If you plan on switching to a different job tell the employer you're getting ready to work for to keep that confidential.
Build your team.
Find people who are willing to help you through your career transition. Such as: Family members, Friends out of your work, family friends. Anyone who is willing to help you with the transition and can keep from you current employer that you're switching jobs is the perfect person to help with transition.
Act on facts, not assumptions.
If someone is telling you that the place you want to work at is bad then research about the workplace. Don't let someone who hasn't worked there tell you whether or not it's a bad place to go to work for. Go ask employees about the work area there.
Networking is important for job seekers but for people in career transition is really crucial. You must connect to people who are able to introduce decision makers. When you meet new people, make sure they know why you're a good fit for the job you want.
