Are you interested in re-entering the workforce after a career break? Are you overwhelmed by the feeling that you will no longer have enough time for your family, volunteer opportunities, or hobbies?

J WiseDo you seek a career change? Do you fear that since others have been working in that industry for years and are more experienced, you will not be able to succeed, be valued, or be appreciated?

Fear is a normal part of the career change process, which often morphs into self-doubt, inactivity, and paralysis.

How can you overcome your fears and move on? Assess the risk!

What advantages will you gain from this change?

What’s the worst thing that could happen and what would you then do?

Once we do a concrete analysis, most of us learn that our fears are greater than the reality of what might transpire. Most of what we fear never occurs.

Take some small steps to get started. Share a blog about your interests. Contact a recruiter. Attend a Career Transformation Conference. Discuss your interests with friends, family, and your network. Spruce up your LinkedIn profile and resume. Reach out to alumni organizations, career centers, or career coaches.

Most importantly, DO SOMETHING, because inaction, which is doing nothing over and over again, will definitely not move you ahead.
