Do you feel stuck? Don't know where to start? Fed up with no progress?

The whole Careershifters team have been through their own career changes. We learnt during our shifts that one of the hardest things for us to do was simply to get started. In fact, it took us months to build up the confidence to make the shift and even longer to work out how to make the change.

During this time, we were feeling disillusioned, stuck and unmotivated ??? affecting the people we cared about most: our family and friends.

Looking back, we realised that we could have done a few simple things to avoid a lot of this heartache. And that???s why we designed the Careershifters workshop.

Quote mark Really energising and thought-provoking. I feel excited about the future."
Jackie - Business Change Manager

The first step to any career change is to get a clear understanding of what is important to you so that you can then figure out what the right career is for you ??? that's what this workshop is all about

Often career changers ???jump in at the deep end??? of career change, trying to list job options before thinking about what exactly they want to get out of a career change. This can result in a lot of frustration, and rarely results in a good career change.

Why? Because picking a new career without understanding your basic ???me-criteria??? is akin to closing your eyes and picking a career at random. No wonder people spend years going around in circles trying to decide what to do next. Through this workshop, you learn how to choose a new career, the right way.

With a real understanding of yourself you can create a list of your career ???must haves??? and ???deal breakers???. This means:

  • You will have criteria for deciding which careers to explore and which to eliminate
  • You will understand how to filter your search by what makes you tick, what motivates you, what environment is right for you

In short, you'll go away with the  tools, techniques and knowledge you need to make your career change a success.

Quote mark It???s given me a kick up the backside to do something."

I had an epiphany that gave me the clarity of direction I had been seeking. If you're unsure about what direction to go in, try the workshop. If you only meet people in the same boat, that in itself is helpful; but you may also get the clarity you need like I did."
