Should I change career?

HR Documents, Outsourced HR, HR Advice

After trying my hand at several things after finishing University, and my thirties getting ever closer, I had that scary thought … where am I going in my life, my career??

At that moment in time, I was working in the recruitment business and had been for three years and it started to dawn on me that this was not the career for me.

After considering my strengths, values and what I enjoy, I decided HR would be an interesting option, I had a recruitment base and as a ‘people person’ I felt it could be the right match!

Further research into this confirmed to me that this could be it, so I braced myself for the inevitable salary hit and started applying enthusiastically for junior HR roles. This career change which I thought would be an easy transition…. No way – my hopes of this change being easy were quickly dashed as the rejection emails came flooding in because I had no previous experience.

However, despite this set back, I didn’t give up, ok so I may not have the experience, so I decided to get qualified and enrolled to study for my CIPD Level 3. This was tough – studying every evening and weekends alongside working full time, not to mention the financial element as it was self-funded!

I am pleased to say though my efforts paid off…  after many applications and job interviews later, I landed myself my perfect role at HR Revolution, giving me the chance to gain the HR experience I was looking for, with the added bonus of being able to work with a variety of clients across a range of industries.

I feel a change in career takes courage, flexibility and motivation to deal with the tough times it can bring, however the rewards once you succeed are certainly worth it!  I’m 7 months into my new role in HR Consultancy, CIPD qualified and love it…
