Background

This webinar is based on interviews with thousands of business executives over the years, concerning their career change experiences, motives, ambitions, values, and life priorities. What they felt is good career change practice, what perhaps not and what they felt was "missing". Some points from these discussions:

  • The starting point and the reasons behind a wish to land a new job are always individual.
  • Every career change situation is also individual, so are the questions people wonder about.
  • Even though what happens is simple to understand, once you start a career change process, things are not anymore always as clear and straightforward as they felt a moment ago.
  • Entering a career change process is like entering an ecosystem, with numerous factors that have the potential to either enable or hinder a career move.
  • Most like to confidentially spar their career change plans with someone, and feel having had an open, objective, and diverse exchange of opinions with an outsider has been of great help to them.

 

Some reflections

A career change should be well-thought, thoroughly planned and properly executed. Still, in practice, career change action plans tend to be insufficient, leaving many wondering about these kinds of things:

  • Sometimes I do not have a clear understanding of what I want to do.
  • I send in numerous applications – and nothing?
  • If I am never invited to interviews, or am invited but never become the winning candidate or even a finalist – why so?
  • Is it the job, the hiring company, the hard competition or something I do?
