  • How To Make the Right Career Choice After 30 And Succeed如何在30岁之后做出正确的职业选择并取得成功

    In fact, plenty of people make minor1 and significant career power moves after adulting for a few years. Some have become disenchanted with their original picks. Others realize their talents are more suitable in some other field. Whatever the reason, all career movers usually feel trepidation2. After all, busting3 out of an unfulfilling career choice before midlife seems daunting4.


    Here’s the truth, though—it doesn’t have to cause undue5 amounts of stress. Truth be told, you can do a full u-turn professionally with a career choice that works. You just have to take a few steps to up the chances of emotional, intellectual, and fiscal6 success.


    1. Stop Pursuing Your Future Life on Today’s Terms停止以今天的方式追求你未来的生活

    You need to figure out why your current life has worked for you so far, why it doesn’t work now, and what price you are willing to pay to change it. For instance, you might be going to a nine-to-five job and making “x” amount of dollars annually7. What has the 9 to 5 gotten you so far? (i.e. security?) So, security is one of your current terms. But is that the term you want? Maybe not.


    Figure out what your next-gen terms will be. You’ll be in a better position to negotiate them as you look into a new career.


    2. Audition8 a Bunch of Careers


    Evaluating numerous paths will only help you feel better about your upcoming move. The last thing you want to do is assume that a field will be “the one,” only to find out you were wrong. So, allow yourself to think big, but don’t commit to any specific career choice until you’ve tried on several.


    3. Pinpoint9 Your North Star


    What if you’re having difficulty focusing on your North Star? Picture yourself in three years. Where are you? What does your life look like? Don’t get all muddied in specific jobs. Just be open-minded. Do you want to manage others? Work independently? Be creative? Help people solve big (or small) problems? Your answers will help you define your North Star.


    4. Keep Your Day Job—for Now


    As you become more excited at the thought of a career change, you might be tempted10 to quit whatever you’re doing now. Please don’t. You’ll only set yourself up for potential hardship. Here’s why: It can be very challenging to explain to a would-be recruiter why you suddenly left a position. The recruiter may see you as a “flight risk,” and that’s not a good look.


    Yes, it can be tough to keep going into an office or situation that leaves you disengaged. Nevertheless, you will at least have income flowing into your account. And having enough money today will keep you from fretting11 if you have to take a lower salary temporarily later. After all, sometimes, reaching your North Star will require detours12 like going back to school or taking lesser13 paying positions.


    5. Try a Side Hustle14


    Many people have discovered that the gig economy isn’t just a way to earn some extra bucks15 while you’re working full time. It’s a terrific, low-risk method to try out careers.


    Consider this: You would love to work on old cars for a living. But you’re currently an accountant, and your family counts on your income to cover expenses. As a result, you start a little side business working on a few friends’ antique autos from your home garage.


    In time, you get quite the reputation as someone who knows how to turn a clunker into a status symbol. With a little help from a decent website, word-of-mouth marketing16, and thoughtful digital advertising17, you land lots of clients. If you can reach a tipping point, you can flip18 your side gig. How? Perhaps you keep working as an accountant during tax season but fix cars the rest of the time.


    Above all else, your life is a journey ideally dictated19 by what you need and want. If you’re approaching 30 and feeling disconnected careerwise, contemplate20 a move. You’ll be in good company with all the others who have made the trip before you.
