Have a plan or two: When it comes to making a career change, one of the biggest mistakes you could make is going into it without a plan. Sure, it is perfectly okay to feel a little uncertain about how things are going to turn out –we think that should be expected –but the last thing you want to do is to take a shot in the dark, especially if you have a lot riding on this change (financial obligations, family obligations, etc). So, what we suggest is that you try your best to at least articulate what it is that you want out of your next career and then figure out a few different ways you can approach making that happen. Otherwise, you run the risk of falling back into a career you don’t really want, or failing at even making a change.
