Ready or Not Here It Is
I work with social workers and service professionals who are thinking about or going through professional transitions. Transitions are a natural course of life. A transition is a change or movement from one state of being to another. The definition suggests a journey or a controlled, evenly paced change. One might imagine a gradual transformation, like that of a butterfly. We approach professional career change in this manner. After college or graduate school, we obtain an entry level position. This position will gradually lead us to gain or be hired for positions with more authority, responsibility and pay. After working for 30 years or so, we will retire to enjoy our remaining years.
Life has a way of throwing us into periods of transition that were unexpected and unplanned.
