Fall into a New Job
Looking over your shoulder, hoping your dream job will appear? Blame the season! The changing leaves and cold winter months of September and January are the most popular months to change careers, say the experts.
"If you're a parent and your kids are going back to school, you naturally start thinking: What about me?” says corporate speaker Merge Gupta-Sunderji. The New Year, with so many long months ahead, also offers the perfect opportunity to start fresh.
However, Carol Kanchier, author of Dare to Change Your Job and Your Life, says the time of year doesn’t matter as much as the type of person you are. She claims questers are people who embrace change often and make the most out of opportunities, while traditionalists are more…well, traditional (of course!) and are more focused on money and job security instead. Either way, she says, "If we don't voluntarily change, the universe is going to help us by some kind of sign." Maybe it’ll be those red and gold leaves after all!
