Find new career opportunities by searching outside your current field.
When it comes to the job search, not all fields are created equally. In a recent study, TheLadders found that, depending on the city, one job seeker’s desert can be another’s oasis. For example, healthcare workers in Boston currently enjoy a favorable job market, whereas those in real estate in the same city are more likely to struggle during the job hunt.
For those in the desert, a career transition may be in order so your skills can be put to use in a more favorable field. While many people have considered or even yearned to change fields, this is easier said than done.
Follow these three steps when making a career change.
