Being at the crossroads of your career can be troublesome.  How to handle it?  It is best to know what is ahead of you. 

You have probably come across a career action plan of some sort before that you can use in this instance.  Each plan may differ slightly, but most probably they have the following elements that I believe are important.

  1. Self Assessment - Who am I and where am I in my career path?  You may have a feeling about yourself, but for most people, a clearly defined session to examine your skills and interest is a very good step to take.  There are many assessment tests available online or through coaches to assist in this evaluation.  It may crystalize your perception of who you are.
  2. Set Career Goals - Where do I think I want to be?  Try to identify, as clearly as you can exactly what you want to do.  You may have more than one occupation that you want to consider.  That’s OK.  Matter of fact, that may be the best approach.  Consider several alternative, but identify the goal.
