Draw up a plan for a career change


You're now ready to set out on a new professional horizon and the time has come to draw up a plan for it. 

Steps to follow to change your career path

  • Define your profile: what is your potential and what are your previous experiences (know-how, strong points, aptitudes, etc)?
  • Take stock of what you've got: what resources do you have to make the move (money, holidays, training, etc.)?
  • Test the project by confronting it with reality (meet people who work in that role/sector/company, get some hands-on experience or training).
  • Establish an action plan: the project is taking shape but before you take any action, you need to be clear about your goals. Define a strategy and identify the resources (material ones in particular) which will allow you to reach these goals.

4 key points for a successful career change

  • Be clear about your abilities and assets.
  •  Be familiar with the market that you're aiming to enter.

  •  Organise your research and readjust your plans if necessary.

  • Be capable of seizing the opportunities that present themselves.
