It can be difficult for anyone to contemplate a career change, but as we age it becomes ever more difficult to consider starting life anew. A midlife career change can be very rewarding, but it can also be very difficult. Finding good career change advice or career change coaching can make all the difference, especially in a midlife career change.
- Why do people contemplate a change later in life? The average person will change jobs between 10 and 15 times during the course of a life. Between 2015 and 2016 alone, almost 4% of the entire United States workforce transferred from one occupation to another completely different one. Many of these changes are spurred on by a desire to do something more meaningful or rewarding. Another reason for a midlife career change may be the desire to find something more challenging. Some simply want to find something that pays better or is a better fit for the personal changes they have gone through.
