If you’ve been out of the workplace for a while or you’re looking for a complete change of career, it can seem daunting diving back in. Here are some top ways to REGAIN SOME SELF-CONFIDENCE…

GET A HANDLE ON YOURSELF

Identify your talents (what you are good at naturally) and do a soft and hard skills audit categorising your strengths. This exercise alone will show you the unique offerings you have, affirming your value.

IDENTIFY YOUR EXPECTATIONS

With your talents and skills in mind, consider what YOU really want from your workplace in terms of pay, commute and environment. Acknowledging the practical elements that promise to satisfy your work needs will help to verify your sense of self.

YOU HAVE TRANSFERABLE SKILLS TOO

Identify your transferable skills and experience drawn from your entire career history and even from any career breaks (soft skills). Doing this will reveal that you have even more to offer than you may have initially considered – widening your options.

CORE VALUES

What are you truly passionate about? What are your values? Pinpointing what these are will confirm what type of roles and industry cultures you need to seek out to make you truly happy and fulfilled at work, crystallising your sense of direction.

BRUSH UP

If you feel out of touch with the latest technology and market trends of your target industry, don’t just worry about it – do something about it. Do some research and find out what you need to be back on top.
