If you have been in the same type of job role for a number of years, there may come a time when you fancy a change or that a change is essential. It can be hard to know what sort of jobs to look for if you have little or no experience in any other field other than the one you currently work in.
Following the recession, many people were made redundant and there was a shortage of jobs. This is slowly picking back up and more and more jobs are becoming available but still you may find that people with relevant qualifications and / or experience are often offered the job over you. If you can, you may need to go back in to education or find a job that offers full training. This often comes with a pay drop but if you are confident that you want to work in that industry then it is sometimes worthwhile dropping down on your money and think about the long term rewards you can get from a change in career.
