KB Staffing Aids Your Transition
There are plenty of valid reasons to consider a career switch, such as wanting to work closer to home, earn more money, or have more opportunities for professional development. Simply wanting a change in your occupation is fine, too. However, no matter what your motivation is, you need to do your research before you jump ship.

First, take an inventory of your marketable skills, interests, and values. Remember to consider how transferable your skills are from one application to others, as this will broaden your skillset. Take all of your experience into account, including things like volunteer work and school projects or internships. This may give you some insight as to what type of work you might like to pursue next. 

Next, determine what industries you would be willing to accept a position in. What job openings are currently available in these industries? Do you have any professional or social contacts in an industry that you are evaluating? Compile a list of possible employment opportunities to look into further.

Now you need to rebrand yourself. Update your resume, CV, relevant social media profiles, and anything else that represents your professional persona to reflect your goal of making a segue from one field into another. Then seek chances to gain relevant experience through freelancing, volunteering, mentorships, or other avenues that allow you an immersive encounter in your fields of interest. KB Staffing can help you find full-time temp jobs in various industries.
