Summary You're well into your career and yet you're not where you want to be. Perhaps you've done everything you need to do to be named a partner, but your firm has encountered a crisis that's put all promotions on hold. Maybe a hobby or sidegig has helped unearth a new passion you'd love to pursue full-time. Perhaps you've come to realize that your current role is no longer meaningful. Or maybe you've exceeded all of the goals you set for your current career and you're ready for a new challenge. How do you envision possible new professional selves, explore your options, and embark on a dramatic career makeover when you have a mortgage to pay, kids to support, college and retirement funds to feed--and a full life and full-time job? Can you really set aside the years you've invested in your education and current industry? How can you make a radical change when there are so many demands on you? Whether you know what you want your second act to be or you have no clue--only that what you're doing isn't a match, this guide will help you chart a course and make the switch. You'll discover how to: - Break free of what your career is now to consider what it could be - Get an accurate picture of the skills and abilities you bring to the table - Create experiments that won't sabotage your current job - Assess the financial implications of making a change - Develop a compelling way to tell your story--tying even seemingly unrelated jobs into a cohesive narrative - Build expertise in a new field - Land a new role-- Provided by publisher.
