Re-starting your career mid-life is not easy. We assume it won’t happen to us. The truth is 49% of people make a dramatic career change and the average age of those people is 39.

Many do it by choice, but just as many do it because they were phased out of a job or fired or just couldn’t do the job anymore for physical or emotional reasons. So, is it safe to assume that you will do the job that you’re currently in for the rest of your life? No. Is there anything you can do now, before you have to change careers? Yes.

Be prepared. Learn. Develop transferrable skills. Start now.
