ARTICLE: 5 Steps To Escape Into A New Career
5 steps to escape into a new career
It’s Sunday night. You have work in the morning, the week stretching ahead of you.
How do you feel?
If it’s any variation of ‘sheer dread’, ‘wildly anxious’ or ‘bored just thinking about it’ - it might be time to shake things up.
Which is, of course, much easier said than done. Lots of people are unfulfilled at work, but not many of them do anything to change it.
We’re here to help you become one of the people who do.
At Escape, we believe in doing work that matters to you. Because whichever way you look at it, life’s too short to waste half your waking hours on stuff you don’t care about; and it’s too long to put up with years of boredom, stress, or apathy.
We help people navigate the winding road through career change - messy, daunting and varied as it is. From our work with thousands of career changers over the last 7 years, we’ve identified 5 steps that will move you forward in a new direction. They’re designed to help you think, test and build your way to work that matters to you by asking the right questions, taking small actions, and creating opportunities in new ways.
Each step is a question. If the answer is ‘yes’, you can press on to the next step. If it’s a ‘no’ (or even a ‘hmm, maybe’) then sit with it a bit longer - or even rewind to a previous step to reset your course. And avoid skipping steps, even though some will be harder than others. Each step creates the foundation for the next, so leaving any out could mean things get wobbly.
