Furthermore, most working adults between the agesof 18-59 change career industries an average of 3-4 times, and change jobs an average of 7-9 times.Changing jobs is never easy. It can create feelings of stress, anxiety, overwhelm, fear of change, fear ofrejection, and the list goes on. But it doesn’t have to be this way. In fact, it helps just understanding thatgetting a new job is a simple, methodical, step-by-step process. And no matter where you are in theprocess you can always move forward.The first and most critical step is being able to identify where on your career path right now, and whereyou want to go.
