10 Things That You Should Consider Before Making a Career Move Part 8

Hi, I’m Taylor Mauer, Founder and Senior Managing Partner at Heavy Civil Resource Consultants, back with another two-minute Tuesday tip of the week. This week marks our 8th video in our 10 questions to ask yourself before you trade in your current employer for a new one series.

Last time, we tackled a crucial consideration: whether you’re truly committed to your decision in the face of a counter offer. It’s essential to gauge your dedication to your chosen path before making any significant moves.

Now, let’s delve into the 8th question: Have I consulted with my mentor or trusted confidants in the industry regarding the career move? What did they say?

It’s easy to get lost in our own thoughts when considering a career move. That’s why seeking guidance from those who have walked a similar path or possess invaluable industry insights is invaluable. Mentors and trusted confidants can offer fresh perspectives, drawing from their wealth of experience.

Reach out to them and engage in open dialogue about your potential career shift. What challenges did they encounter when making similar decisions? What advice do they have based on their knowledge of the current landscape? Their input can be instrumental in helping you weigh the pros and cons of your options.

Remember, your network is an invaluable resource in navigating career transitions. At Heavy Civil Resource Consultants, we understand the power of connections. With access to over 30,000 hiring managers in civil, construction, and engineering sectors, we can help you identify career opportunities that align with your goals.
