Colin is likely to remain in accountancy, but still wants to explore other options. Some of his activity is therefore focused on retraining options and careers guidance. The local Learning and Skills Council (LSC) could provide Colin with a wealth of information concerning retraining. In order to find out exactly how they can help, he is ringing to arrange an appointment. Career Centres do not just deal with school leavers but increasingly with a wide range of older people. Colin has a vague idea of their service, but his plan of action includes arranging an appointment with a careers adviser.

His action plan is not concentrated purely on job search and acquiring information on a change of career, but also on practical issues relating to finance. Rather than worry about what will happeing to his house if he does not succeed in finding work quickly, he is arranging to see his bank manager. A 'clear the air talk' will relieve some of the stress relating to Colin's financial position.

The main conclusion to draw from Colin's action plan is 'if you don't know, find out'.


Action points

Because we are likely to face rejection, a positive attitude can motivate us to 'stick with it'.

Having a good CV is useless unless we take action and put it to work.

Compile our own action plan and review and update it regularly.

Review the points on how we must respond to the changes in the world of work. Which is most necessary for you to do?

The CV is a reflection of the 'real you', so use it as a 'pick-me-up' whenever you face setbacks.

Your CV is a dynamic document that changes and develops as you do.


What have been the main points you have learned?

How would you describe yourself? Naturally optimistic or pessimistic?

How do you feel about change? Resigned to it, or excited by it?

How would you now describe your feelings about yourself and your future?
