I left my corporate job in November 2019 in search of a career switch. I was enjoying my little freedom for a while after working continuously for about 5 years. It was in February 2020 when I figured out what’s my next step should be and the industry that I want to go into, but the COVID19 situation worsened and businesses were forced to close. I used this time to take up new hobbies (trekking, cooking & painting), these are the ones that have been on my mind for the longest time but I didn’t have the time to pursue due to work commitments. At the same time, I took up online courses as a form of professional development that will be useful for my next career. I also used this valuable time to do up my resume and connect with people in a similar industry on LinkedIn. I must say, these people whom I randomly connected on LinkedIn really gave good advice on my next step to pursue a career in the industry.
They say “Great things never came from comfort zones.” Use this time to try out new things with an open mind, have faith and good things will come your way.
