Time for a Career Change + 5 Tips For Changing Your Career

Every season has its own feel. Some seasons swift by barely leaving a trace of standout memories...maybe that’s because I don’t have children (yet). Some seasons on the other hand, are slow and painful. The latter may be especially true if you’re in a season where you’re yearning for a change. I touched on my recent struggles with feeling stagnant in almost every area in my life…primarily with my career. This post is about how I’m changing my circumstances to obtain the career I want. With a career change, comes lots of work.

No more will I wait around for an opportunity to find me or wonder how other people are living their dreams. I asked God for clarity about my career and He answered! I can strongly and deeply feel God moving my life into a new direction. But, I know that there are also some things that I will need to do in my own power to prepare. Because before I can experience prosperity of a new season, I have to first experience preparation in this season. With that said, there are some things you can do in your own power to prepare for a change in your career. Soft skills will no longer be enough to "get your foot in the door." Today's job market requires strong, very specific skills and digital trades. Look at it like this, everyone puts that they know how to type and utilize Microsoft Word.

You will need much more to make yourself more marketable in the field you seek. It's time to put in work, and that may mean more than having your degree. Strong, specific, skills are key!

Speak What You Seek

I cannot go on before saying that my spirit is bothered that so many of my loved one (self included) who are on the brink of walking out on their jobs. Low wages, feeling under-utilized, under-valued, and disrespected in the workplace is plaguing many of us and we want to give up; But realistically, we all have to maintain our fiscal responsibilities. We just need to think smarter about how to change our current circumstances. It's time to turn that pity into productivity by preparing for a career change!

Here are my 5 tips for changing your career!

Simple Baked Chicken Drumsticks: With Garlic Roasted Potatoes

Happy Friday Carmalistas!

Today, I'm sharing a quick and simple baked chicken drumstick recipe! I shared my excitement with the Food.com app in this post, and I was inspired again to create another delicious recipe from the app.

Simple Baked Chicken Drumsticks

I had no particular recipe in mind when searching for a new dinner idea last Sunday (that's the day we do our grocery shopping). I did however, know that I wanted something simple and quick to make, with few ingredients. That's when I stumbled upon this amazing simple baked chicken drumstick oven recipe! The garlic roasted potatoes were my idea, as I wanted to have a starch with our meal. It was a one dish meal, and that was a plus for me, with our busy work schedules. Since it's just the two of us, we had two days worth of dinner...score! Give this recipe a try, and tell me what you think! You could easily substitute with white meat, if dark meat is not your cup of tea. ;)
