Changing Careers At 40

There are many factors which make a person to think about changing his or her career at the age of 40, in spite of this change being difficult for them. Some of these factors include:

  • Job Dissatisfaction – This is probably the biggest factor which pushes a person to quit his or her current job and search for something which is as per their liking and interest. When we are young and fresh out of college, if proper guidance is given to us at that point of time, there is a big chance that we might end up in a career which does not suit our sensibilities. Thus, by the time we reach the age of 40 and have wasted quite a few important years of our life in an unhappy job, our dissatisfaction level reaches a point where we can take it no more and hence, start seeking career change advice and midlife career change counselling in an attempt to switch to a career which interests us more.
  • Bleak Future Prospects – Another important reason which can push a person to seek career counselling for professionals at the age of 40 and look for a new job is the fact that the future growth prospects in their current job make have worsened over time, the person is just not able to see a good and secure future for himself or herself in the current job.
  • Better Pay – By the time you reach the age of 40, you start to plan for your retirement and therefore, you would want to be in a position where you are able to earn maximum money. For this, many people are ready to take the risk of a career change in the hope to earn extra money and retire in a more comfortable position financially.
