"How to Make a Career Change at 50"

It’s never too late to change the direction of your career if it is not giving you job satisfaction, although the nearer to retirement you leave it, the more factors you will have working against you.

A career change at 50 can be excellent timing. You will have at least fifteen years left before retirement and you bring to the table as many as 20 to 30 years of professional experience.

You may now have fewer caring responsibilities holding you back and, financially, you may well be in a more secure position to leave a solid but unfulfilling role and seek a new challenge.

Employers can benefit from your wealth of experience as well as a long proven work history, which can be an advantage over younger hires. Additionally, you can offer an understanding of corporate culture and strategy as well as a wealth of business contacts.
