Last time we discussed the importance in your career change planning of generating a robust list of career options. Changing careers at 50 starts with this first step.

The next step is to consider the things you’re good at. You may be considering changing careers but what skills will you take with you to the new career?  By skills I don’t mean your degree or education but what are you really good at? What are your talents?

Are you good at project management? Are you a problem solver? What motivates you? Can you explain things to others? How about getting cooperation from others? What do others tell you what you’re good at? All of these talents, taken together will point you toward jobs that you would enjoy.

Changing careers at any age is rarely easy but if taken a step at a time can lead you to the right job in the right new career.

For ideas on finding that new career at 50, and other career change ideas after 50 go to http://careersafter50.com.  Find out the stories of what others after 50 did to plan and ultimately move into their new careers.
