Is a change of profession too wild to even think of? Is it an option for you? Who to consult, where to start and how to best use your valuable time, energy and resources.



 Articles within the topic:


You are intending to be your own boss and to provide a service or make a product on a small scale. At present, you are planning neither to employ other people, nor to apply for loans from banks or investors.

Do you, in that case, need to spend your time on writing a business plan and developing a business model?


While circumstances such as the current economic situation and labour market trends may be beyond your control, there are still many things that you can determine, and thus make your job search (even) more effective.

Whether you are seeking a job for the first time in your life or you already have work experience, you probably have several ideas about what you could do. This set of three basic articles about job search (Job search in a nutshell; 8 tasks; 5 essences) may offer you some additional tips and help you structure those ideas into a job search plan.


Yes, it can happen to you too. It can and does happen to anybody, including CEOs, presidents and Nobel Prize winners. Once or several times in your life, you are likely to face a time when you lose or give up a contract and need to seek a new job.


Change of profession, rather than just change of job, might be a risky idea. It may also be the best idea you ever have.



Previous experience with a similar type of work is an obvious advantage when applying for a job. However, one needs to start somewhere and it can be challenging to enter a new field and get your first jobs in it. Recent graduates, as well as anybody changing careers, find themselves in a challenging vicious-circle situation: no jobs without work experience, no work experience without jobs.

Do you also wonder how to reveal the truth about your lack of experience without losing credibility, and get those first work opportunities?


By “career change”, I mean a complete switch of your professional direction. You start a new career in a field that is not necessarily related to your previous jobs.

Here is a brief list of steps I recommend to you to begin with. No matter whether you are totally decided or still just considering it, you can already start with these steps.


You are considering a career change. You have an idea – or several ideas – for a new career direction. You have googled and read and thought about it, and observed the whole thing from a safe distance.

Now it’s time to test whether you would really like it!

This article offers a few ideas on how to get in touch with the reality of the new career you have been considering, before you make any serious commitments.


Changes are often postponed. So at the moment when we finally decide to do something, to change our lives, we want it quickly, immediately, now. We have no appetite for living as we used to: staying in the same job, or still unemployed, remaining in the same relationship, or the same country. But we know all too well that changes take time. So the question of today´s blog is:

How do you survive the time it takes till you achieve your remote goal?


The best way to save time and make progress is to use the power of synergy: do things that serve multiple purposes.


Are you feeling stuck with making a big, important decision? Have you already thought through all your options,  and are you struggling with choosing between them? Perhaps it all feels perplexing and too heavy and you keep circling through the same thoughts and feelings. The following article offers you a step-by-step guide on how to be thorough, yet get out of the circle and progress with your decision.
