Knowing Before Changing Careers

Changing careers need not necessarily mean switching employers. You can change careers with your current employer, if they are open to such a change.

You are a restless and an industrious guy. Moving up in the same job or hopping companies for a promotion or a raise no longer excites you. You know that you are capable of chewing more than the best of them. Though you are not highly skilled in something interesting, you are confident of finding your way to success working hard. Some specialized fields may call for a short duration of training. The knowledge you have gained over time about the new profession and the drive that you have to create something is driving you to change professions altogether. For example, if you are a professor of economics teaching at a university you will change careers to a top ranking finance management position of a big corporation. Your finance background will assist you in making the change successfully.

New career options in six sigma methodology has opened up more opportunities for those who excelled in their previous careers. As more and more companies are discovering that implementing six sigma helps them break barriers that they always thought were insurmountable, people with brilliance written on their foreheads are finding new and fulfilling careers. To enter a career in six sigma implementation, you should have well-rounded experience in various management positions and mastery in at least one of them.

Changing careers is not for the faint of heart. It is no fun unless you eat challenges for breakfast. You must like what you are doing and must posses the desire to excel.
