Want A Change Of Career? Make Sure Your Finances Are In CheckWednesday, February 22, 2017
All of us, at some point in our lives, have wanted to change careers and have a brand new, fresh start. It is easy for jobs to become boring, old, and tedious especially if we have worked the same job for a long amount of time. It is also common, though, for relatively new jobs to become boring - this can be true for jobs that we do not enjoy, see as something to fill the gap or bring in easy money, or if it is a job which we have had to take due to financial difficulty and we needed a job to help ease debt, pay bills, or to maintain the way of life which we are used to.. There are a lot of people out there who are in jobs which are not right for them, and these people can be easily spotted in an office: procrastinating, chatting with colleagues most of the day and it is easy to see they have no passion for what they do.
If you feel like you need a change of career, then instead of making an instant, spontaneous decision you should take the time to work out whether you can afford to hand in your notice (without any other job lined up), other jobs which you are more interested in will pay as well as your current one and whether you are actually ready to take on a new career and are prepared in all aspects to make a fresh start in your life. To enable you to quit your job and make a fresh start in your chosen new career in the best possible way, you may want to start looking after your money more carefully, but in such a way where you are able to live as well as you did before. Good ways of saving money include not going overboard in terms of spending (such as not buying unnecessary items and only buying essential items), looking for deals on products, choosing a no deposit car finance deal, and reducing the cost of your bills by only using gas, electric and water when you really need it. Some people may think that saving money is a difficult task, but when you put your mind to it and work at it, it will become second nature.
When you do get that new job which you have been waiting for, you may find yourself in a situation where you do not get paid when you expect it or you do not get paid as much as you had worked out. This is all to do with the start date of your job; for example if you start your job two weeks before payday, you may only get paid for a fortnight’s work. Be prepared for your first paycheck not being as big as you had initially thought. This is a common problem when lots of people start jobs for the first time - make sure you have saved enough money to get you by.
