So far this blog has been uncharacteristically non-controversial. That stops now!
I hope you’ve seen here that career change CAN happen. No one has to stay bound to a career not of his choosing. You have what it takes to proactively choose to change – just start to make it happen!
However, not every careers industry talking head agrees with this philosophy. Marty Nemko of "Cool Careers for Dummies" fame claims that "most aspiring career changers usually end up deciding to stay in their old career." Is that true? If so, why?
In his "Making a Radical Career Change," I claim he’s way off base. Focused on more of what is than what’s possible, Nemko offers some old-school advice and concludes, "try to get your job description changed to suit your strengths."
What do you think? Is it the job that’s lacking, or is it your inner self that’s crying for more?
