Life Transitions

photo_signLong gone are the days when people would work at the same company for their entire career. Instead, constant change is the only given in a person’s career, and continued professional development is the key to success and financial security.

  • Career progression often depends on movement from one company to the next to gain new development opportunities.
  • During certain life stages, different priorities emerge, including: raising a family; needing to support eldercare issues; obtaining an advanced degree; among others. As a result, you may decide to shift from full-time to part-time work or change your career direction.

A person’s long-term career success and personal happiness depends on skillfully adapting to mid-career and life-phase transitions.
