Are you ready for more rewarding, meaningful work?
If your work situation falls short of what you want or need in life, it’s probably time to think about change.
When work takes up so much of our lives, we need to get more from it than just a pay cheque. Too many people accept jobs which are frustrating or under-utilise their talents; others struggle to find fulfilling work after taking time out as a carer or parent, or following redundancy.
Work Horizons is an online alternative to career coaching or outplacement support. It is a membership site which will help you to work out your aspirations and constraints, to prepare for and find the right work and then crucially, to thrive in your new position.
If you join Work Horizons, you will have unlimited access to articles, exercises, videos and other resources. You will find a mix of thought-provoking discussions, how-to guides and practical checklists. Work Horizons isn’t a structured course that spoon-feeds you step-by-step instructions; it offers you a choice of expert insights and new ways of thinking about your career and job-hunting, together with a supportive, career-focused online community.
It was devised and created by experienced, qualified coaching and work specialists, to provide 80% of the benefit of hiring a career coach, but at a fraction of the cost. You can preview the site before you decide to join, but only members can benefit from the full content.
So what is it that you really want to do? A simple question, but we don’t always know the answer. We’ll help you to decide whether you want to change employer, or completely change direction, to work for yourself, or start a voluntary job.
When you’re sure you know what type of work you want to do, the next step is to find that work. It used to be easy; you’d just look in the local paper, but there are many more ways of finding work now. We’ll take you through the various ways to find your dream job or work assignment.
If you understand the risks and have the right personality for it, self employment can support a balanced, enjoyable and rewarding lifestyle. But before considering this route, you need a clear understanding of what’s involved and how to plan for success.
