Switching careers is a challenge at best and can become overwhelming. What if there was a way to shorten the process and make it less painful? There is, and the answer is to find mentors to help you, says Find Your Dream Job guest Kwan Segal. Kwan suggests you start by identifying the industry and specific companies you’d like to work in. Be flexible and willing to meet with someone in that company, even if they’re in a different position than you’re seeking. Kwan reminds us that none of us succeed alone, so reach out to others who can become your mentors and help you make your career switch less overwhelming.
