Even if you think you already know the answer to this question, it’s important to really think about why you’re considering such a big change. It’s also worth considering whether you’re motivated by a dislike of your current job or a passion for something else.

You probably have some impression of what it’s like to work in the industry you’re switching to, but it’s a good idea to speak to someone already working in that field.

The most difficult way, but the path many people choose, is to change professions entirely: the job and the field. An administrative assistant at an insurance company, for example, decides she wants to become a magazine writer.

Before you start, always make sure that your supervisor will provide a written recommendation.Finally, one of the easiest ways to try something new is with a part-time job. Spend some time working as a waiter or a salad chef.If you want to be a writer write for the local paper.
But what you will get is valuable experience and those necessary writing clips.Finding a new job is tough.
