Common job issues and solutions in Career Change / Job Search

I am not qualified for the jobs I am interested in.


Research the type of job you are interested in.  Compare the qualifications required and consider taking courses to get qualified.  If you are really interested in a full career change you will need to take the time to acquire skills and training.  Get yourself prepared before you put your resume out there.  Another option is to sit down with your human resources department and let them know about your interests.  They may be able to help you down the path by getting you involved in training to develop your skills.  If you are a good employee, your company would rather invest in you than lose you...give them an opportunity to prove that to you. 


Is your job search local or national?
