Wednesday was a big day for me, the last day of my job before I venture on to my new career path. I had worked in property for 8 months and I really enjoyed it. I had a great team and loved the experience of working in central London but the food industry is certainly the direction I want to go in and I am incredibly excited to start with this company.
In your twenties it is pretty difficult to say for sure what you want to do with your life. There are just so many options that it becomes easy to over complicate things. I was convinced I would work in food but I absolutely loved property development too. I have now realised that property is more of an interest than a career for me, but it can be really hard to distinguish between what is just an interest and what you actually want your career to be. My advice is talk it out with those who know you best and trust your gut.
Deciding to change jobs in the middle of a pandemic may seem crazy, but why not now? If this pandemic has taught us anything it is that life is too short and time is too minimal to not take opportunities and put yourself out there. Once you start to open your mind and begin the process things will align and opportunities will come your way.
My advice is, if you feel you have outgrown your current situation then it is time to level up. If you feel you are meant for bigger things, then you are and it is time to level up. You never want to look back and wander what could have happened if you had made the changes you wanted to, you must endure the discomfort of change in order to reach your highest potential.
If you are worried about telling your boss or what your family and friends might think, remind yourself that thousands of people leave there jobs each day, the day you hand your notice in, thousands of other people are doing the same. You don’t have to make others understand, that is up to them, so make that change!
