Professionals about their career switch

Work-life balance, a different industry, learning new skills, more impact… there are many reasons to consider a career switch. But when push comes to shove, it isn’t always so obvious. What’s the best step from here? In what industry or corporate culture will you thrive? Will your skills and strengths be appreciated? Will you be able to keep developing yourself? And how do you know the time is right? It helps to hear how other people dealt with similar situations in order to figure out where you stand. At Top of Minds, we speak to interesting professionals every day. About their consulting exit, about the winding path to CEO of CFO level, and about career choices they had to make along the way. And we’re proud to share some of the most gripping and inspiring stories with you.
