What advice do you have for those who are doing a mid-career switch?
Though there are a lot of resources available online, doing a mid-career switch is a very big step and definitely emotionally exhausting and stressful. Do you have any practical advice on how reduce these stresses?
Stress with mid-career switches can be an emotional roller-coaster ride. An individual may go through the stages of needing some Coaching, Counselling, Consultation or Cultivation, or even any such combination. WSG through the volunteer Career Advisor initiative offers face-to-face or virtual meetups, and somewhat of a personal interface, via a volunteer such as yours truly, to appreciate the circumstances and challenges on hand, in order to share support and offer practical resources. Through the WSG resources network, focused guidance may also be tapped to better tackle related stress.
