Pursue the Right New Industry Options and You May Change Your Life
People should be prepared to market themselves so that they are attractive to employers across a broad range. The reality is that people of all ages are moving into exciting new industries. Transition to a new industry is easier than it used to be. Historically, people have overrated the barriers and underrated their abilities to move into new areas. The vast majority of all new jobs are created by small and mid-sized businesses. So, while major employers are still important, you may want to explore positions with start-ups or emerging companies. If you choose the right industry, you will have more growth opportunities, perhaps meaningful stock options, an environment that is likely to be more positive, a chance for more regular pay increases and probably advancement.
