Changing careers is not an easy process. Some may even go as far as saying that it’s impossible, particularly after a certain age. Yet, this cannot be further from the truth. People change careers all the time, and as time goes on, more and more will have to do the same.

Today’s world is going through its fourth Industrial Revolution, aptly called Industry 4.0. It stands for the digitization of much of the business environment as well as the widespread use of automation throughout many industries. What this means is that 25% of jobs, particularly those in transportation and manufacturing, will be replaced by machines and software. But in their place, many other Information Technology jobs will appear. 

Changing careers will be, for some, a necessity. MyComputerCareer will help those looking to do so by providing them with numerous courses designed to earn them certificates in I.T. With these certificates, from organizations such as Microsoft, Linux, Cisco Systems, CompTIA, and EC-Council, our students will be able to land jobs in I.T. Security, Network Administration and/or Helpdesk. 

That said, here are three common mistakes you should avoid when making the transition from one career to another. 

Rushing the Decision

One of the most common mistakes that people make is to rush the decision to change their career. Some may only be dissatisfied with their current job and decide to put their foot down, saying that they’ve had enough and want something else. But it’s better to take the necessary time to assess the situation and see precisely what’s the matter with the current job. It might not be the industry, per se, but maybe your boss or you had a bad month. A career change will need a great deal of commitment, and you need to be sure this is what you want. 

Quitting Without a New Job Lined Up

Others, on the other hand, might be too eager or too committed to starting their new career that they abandon their old job before they have something else lined up. You can take online courses to earn the necessary credentials and qualifications while keeping your current situation and only when you have something substantial should you hand in your resignation. Besides providing courses, MyComputerCareer also offers job placement opportunities for its students. 

Not Using a Functional Resume 

Even if you’ve gained experience at your old job, this doesn’t mean that it will transition to your new career equally as well. That said, there may be some skills you’ve acquired over the years that may be of use at your new job. 

One common mistake that people make regarding their resume is that they use a chronological model instead of a functional one. With a chronological resume, people will list their past jobs from newest to oldest. But with a functional resume, however, you would be highlighting your credentials, qualifications, and skills, instead of previous employment.
