Thinking about a new career?
Sometimes, another profession may be calling
Are you ready for a change of career?
I found myself in that situation after working in a career for 11 years. It was a scary position for me to be in, because I had a stable job, great medical benefits, and was building up a pension for my retirement.
As I looked at different options for employment, I knew I would have to start over and leave my comfort zone. My wife saw an advertisement about an informational night at Everence to find out more about becoming an Everence advisor.
After I was hired, Everence provided me with training that helped set the tone for my career at Everence.
After lots of prayer, discussion and research, I'm convinced I made the right decision.
If you are thinking about a possible career switch, here are some issues to think about:
- You do have to consider the financial implications of a potential new job. Will it supply you with enough benefits and income?
- God puts passions in your life. Do you have a passion for what you are doing, or is there another profession out there that you feel called to?
As for me, I feel that I've found my dream job. I'm able to work with people to help them on their financial journeys - setting goals, making sure they have protections set up, preparing for the future, and finding ways to integrate their faith and finances.
May God guide you as you think about your future and where you are called to be.
