You know it is time for a job change or a change of career if you feel bored or de-motivated by your work. The best way to manage any job or change of career is to anticipate it.
Does your job have a future or is it in a dying industry? Has your company made people redundant recently?
Are you keeping your skills up to date? How do your skills fit in with the current market? If you are stuck in a rut, want to change profession or have been made redundant, this could be the time to take stock and build on your existing skills or even pursue that new career direction and change of career.

What do you wish to become? What do you want to be? Do you need to re-train? Is the career pathway ahead clear? Could you benefit from some additional career advice? What do you want to gain from a change in career?
