3 Career Ideas for the New Year

Can you believe we only have 2.5 months until we’re ringing in a new year? The new year is a chance for a fresh start, an opportunity to reinvent yourself. If you’ve been feeling a bit over your career for a while, or just looking for a change, this could be the perfect time to make that transition. Have a think about what kind of work you’d like to do? Do you want to be around people all the time, or do you want to have a job that’s less social? Would you prefer something that has a lower entry point so you don’t have to spend years studying, or does the thought of heading to college excite you? It’s time to dig deep, to figure out what will light you up and to move towards your new career goals in the new year. Keep reading for my top 3 career ideas for the new year.

1. Hair Stylist
Hair is complicated. When you think about all your closet friends, consider their hair color, texture, cuts… it’s a whole world. If you’re looking for a job that’s very social and also very technical, then hair styling might be for you. A good haircut can change someone’s mood, make them feel infinitely more confident and help make special occasions even more special. You’re basically like a real life fairy godmother who gets to wave their magic wand and make people’s lives better. Interested in learning more?

2. Film Producer
Have you always liked making family videos? Perhaps you’ve got a smartphone and put it to use every week or so, creating homemade videos that you upload to social media. Being a film producer can have a lot of the same magic that you find in those moments collecting and editing films. It’s a profession that allows you to be artistic, while still being social. If you’d like to learn more about some great film producers currently following their passions, take a look at deadly illusions.

3. Blogger
Considering I’m a blogger who has done this full time for quite a while, there’s little surprise that being a blogger is on my list. I love blogging because you get to write about your passions, hobbies, and best travel tips. You can engage with your readers, connect with other bloggers, and enjoy the large community that is around this great and relatively new industry. The best part about blogging is that you can blog about almost anything, which means that you can follow your interests while still creating content and hopefully making a livelihood.

With the new year just around the corner, it’s a great idea to figure out what direction you’d like to go. If you’re looking for a career change, I hope one of these suggestions inspires you.
