The Smiths singer Morrissey

Morrissey, front man of 1980s band The Smiths, had a point. His gloomy lyrics rarely get quoted in our office – except in early January. “I was looking for a job and then I found a job, and heaven knows I’m miserable now,” he sang, echoing the thoughts of thousands who wake up on January 1 and think. “RIGHT – that’s IT. I’m quitting this job and finding something else to do with my life.”

There is something about the start of a new year that gets people thinking it’s time for a change. On average, people will have 12 different jobs over their lifetime. Most will move jobs within the same industry or career area – such as junior sales executive moves to sales manager, data analyst working in one company moves to a similar job in another company. But what about when you wake up on January 1 and decide you don’t just want a new job in your industry but a complete change of career?
