If you’re feeling bored, frustrated, or stuck in your current job situation, it may be time to get on a new career path. Doing so might feel intimidating or overwhelming, but the rewards of finding a career in a more interesting field with more opportunity and stability are worth it.
Look for jobs that allow for growth and expansion. Jobs can feel monotonous, doing the same things in the same places. Make it a priority to find jobs that promise changes in role, in location (if that appeals to you), or in project. In addition, looking for jobs that may grow in importance in the future is also a beneficial aspect of opportunity to keep in mind. The medical field, business and project management, and tech development are all fields that are sure to expand in the future.
Technological innovations and social shifts consequently change the necessity of some jobs. If a company finds a cheaper way to run their business it will do so, even if that requires laying off or decreasing the hours of some of their workers. Look for jobs within the field you are entering that are consistently necessary, that provide the kind of stability you can rely on. For example, insurance sales are an especially stable industry with plenty of job openings, because people consistently want and need to protect themselves and their property. You can also market your skills set as a unique and beneficial tool for your employers, which will solidify your place as an essential worker in their employment.
Regardless of the opportunity and stability of a given position, you will still find it dry and unfulfilling if it is not something you have a genuine interest in. Determine what things you are passionate about and then research the kinds of positions within that field that relate to your skills. Network as much as you can; have conversations with people as frequently as possible and ask for help or recommendations to get you where you want to be. You may also consider taking an aptitude test to help you identify jobs you could excel in.
Finding a new career doesn’t have to be harder than remaining in the job your feel stuck in now. Look for good opportunity growth and stability within a field you enjoy, and your career will take the turn for the better that you need it to.
