Changing job is not such an uncommon affair as you might think. There are many people who change their career at various points in life. Some people do it for valid reasons while others for a need of change and adventure. It actually helps some others to find a proper perspective in life. Today the trend in the job arena is to shift companies and to shift the entire career.
You should think about career change definitely if the current job that you doing is not making you happy and is something you started by chance. This happens to many people. When your career is the one you have chosen most often it will not make you happy after a certain point. This is the indication that you should start contemplating on a change. By changing your career you might be able to use talents and skills in a better way. All you have to do is remain open to ideas. However, think deeply before you wish to quit your present job because financial stability is also important.
Sometimes it is seen that in spite of having a stable job some people do not derive satisfaction out of their present job. In this case he/she may be in need of a change. A change that will pose new challenges and demand new enthusiasm for work. You might feel charged up and may want to explore new territories. Do not let this feeling go waste because you may be as successful in the new field. Some people are really multi talented and it is a sin to waste their talents just by being stuck with the present job whereas a change can fetch you name, fame and of course money.
If you think that having a baby has changed your circumstances and that you cannot go out to work, you can quit your present job and start working from home as many women are doing these days. In this way they can take care of the baby and continue to work independently. When you feel that you cannot contribute anymore to your present career look for a change.
