I worked as a Solicitor for years, and decided to take a career break to have children. Whilst off with the children, I decided that I didn’t wasn’t to return to my previous career, and fancied doing something completely different. In the last year or so, I must have applied for about 40 jobs, and have never got any further than interview stage twice. At the moment I’m currently working as a Supermarket Assistant, as I thought it might be easier to get a job whilst employed, but I’m just not getting anywhere. Has anyone changed career successfully, and are there anything th8ngs I should be doing please? Thanks
Yes but what are you looking to do in your new career?
Also, how are you building a network with those in your target field? I've not gotten a good job by just apply to roles posted online. I've always gotten to know hiring managers and applied through them or with them back my application through the main system.
