Switching Your Career

Switching Your Career

by Dawn Graham


Why is it so hard, exhausting, and mind-numbing to switch careers? Successful job-hunting demands career counselling and the right tools. Without this help, you're unlikely to succeed.

Dr. Dawn Graham is the author of Switchers: How Smart Professionals Change Careers and Seize Success. Her book introduces the necessary variables to keep in mind when looking for a career change.

With LinkedIn Learning's Switching Your Career course, Dr. Graham asserts that career switchers can compete with traditional jobseekers; all that's needed is a little motivation to take that leap of faith. Switching Your Career is built upon three areas: hitting the right job market; making the most of transferable skills; and taking advantage of networking opportunities.
