During this challenging time of COVID-19 pandemic, millions of people around the globe are getting retrenched for no fault of theirs. Losing a job is an event for which most people have had little preparation.

A career transition will test and reveal your character, perhaps like no other challenge you have faced. However, a job loss is not irreversible and this is only a temporary setback. You need to have a winning attitude and rebound through meticulous planning and effecive action.

  • How will you take control of your current situation and really do something special to succeed in the next phase of your career and life?

I hope the seven steps outlined in the infographic below will help you find answers to these important questions and make a successful career transition.
