A Career Change at any Age

Whether you're 25 or 55, a career change can be either traumatic or uplifting. Starting a new career at any age is challenging and exciting, especially when it is something you're doing with the help of a spouse or significant other.

A career change, not only affects you, but it affects the needs of those who are a part of your life, including your spouse, your children, and the needs of everyone involved.

Before starting a career change, consider the impact it will have in the future. Is a change something you have always wanted to do? Will a career change give you the freedom you want? How will a career change impact your financial status? Are you willing to make sacrifices if a career change does not live up to your expectations?

Supporting your spouse during a career change

  • The amount of support a spouse needs depends on the nature of the change. Is this a part time career change or will it be long term?
  • Supporting a spouse during a career change should be done with an understanding that this is a choice that you are willing to live with.
  • Showing your loyalty during this change will ultimately bring you closer together.
  • Agreeing on a time frame for the need to change is important. It may take weeks or months to find that career the spouse is looking for.
  • Showing respect for each other during the process of a career change is important.

Relationships may be strained during this phase of your life, but keep in mind that there are no careers that are without fault. Every couple and situation is different.

Supporting your spouse during a career change could be one of the most important phases of your lives together.
