With the right mindset, resources, and support system, a mom can transition into a fulfilling career that aligns with her passions and goals while still prioritizing her family’s needs.
Are you feeling stuck in your current job and ready for a change? Have you heard of Salesforce, the world’s leading customer relationship management software? Well, now is the perfect time to consider a career change and relaunch yourself into the exciting world of Salesforce.
With its user-friendly interface and endless capabilities, Salesforce has become an essential tool for businesses across all industries. As companies continue to adopt this technology, there is a growing demand for skilled professionals in the field. So why not make a move towards a career in Salesforce? In this article, we’ll explore how you can relaunch your career by learning Salesforce skills and becoming an indispensable asset to any organization.
Retraining in a new career can almost feel like returning to your youth: it’s like returning to the bottom of the career ladder and becoming an apprentice in your trade. This is especially true after a career break. Your self-doubt and confidence will challenge you, as you gain knowledge, work experience, expertise to master your new skills.
Tips for a career move mindset
It takes guts to give it a go, but if the new career opportunity is exciting enough then it’s worth the challenge to take the plunge. Be prepared for the following to help you on your way:
The emotional roller coaster
Be prepared to enter the learning journey and acknowledge you will have the emotional ups and downs. Some things you will get straight away, while others you may need to try, try and try again until you eventually master it. The learning journey is like riding a bike!
Be ready to ask for help
Be prepared to work alongside your peers to learn, ask, and receive training and guidance. To progress from training to paid work, you will need to get involved in practical work experience and find a mentor to support you through it. It’s important to ask for help and to learn from those who know more.
Undertaking volunteer work experience gives you a safe place to put your new skills into practice without the pressure of having to deliver to a professional standard. Don’t feel bad about not mastering something for the first time or taking longer to complete something, this is normal during the first few months of working in a new trade.
Thrive outside of your comfort zone
Changing your life style with new training and career commitments can push you outside of your comfort zone. It’s requires energy, commitment, and planning to make sure you don’t drop the balls.
Think carefully about what you need to have in place to manage this change and maintain the balance in other areas of your life whilst you take on the challenge of learning some new and building a new career.
Sell yourself well
Selling yourself into a new job role and career can be a daunting experience, so think about your transferable skills, industry knowledge, personality traits and relevant experience that you feel make you suitable for the role.
Talk about your personal investment in your training and work experience to retrain, and demonstrate interest and understanding in the company and job you are interviewing for.
