CAREER CHANGE SUCCESS STORIES
From HM Royal Marines (Military) To Marketing To Teaching
The big change for me was from the military to civvy-street. Things were done differently, there wasn’t the same level of accountability or team support and in some cases I felt very detached and a million miles away from what I believed to be true.
From Technical Writer To Physical Design Engineer
There were many stressful days that made me doubt my abilities. But, instead of getting stuck, I chose to move forward. I knew I was starting from scratch and I had no choice but to learn - every single day. I really wanted to see myself doing well at the job.
From HR To Coach
Focus on the process and results will follow. This is the best piece of advice I received when I decided to switch careers.
From Technology To Health and Wellness
When in doubt, study - My first boss used to say this to anyone who was in two minds about their career.
I think it made a big difference in getting myself educated when I did not know what to focus on.
