Real Age Reinvention Story

Every now and then we at Reinvent Your Career are lucky enough to hear from past expo attendees who have gone on to upgrade, re-skill, or totally reinvent their careers. We love to hear each individual’s successes and story behind how our events have encouraged them to take that next step in their careers. 

One such career ‘Reinventor’ was happy to share their journey with us, and took the time to answer a few questions. We hope you enjoy this story of reinvention and take inspiration from it as much as we have.

1. Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am a very social person who is interested in sports, travel and the media.

2. What has been your work history to date?

I have worked mainly in financial services.  For the last 5 years I have worked in a call centre.

3. What made you decide to reinvent your career?

I knew I needed a change and working in a call centre is very taxing and can’t be done forever.

4. Congratulations on reinventing yourself through our Melbourne expo in June of this year, tell us how you went about it and about your new career.

I took in as much information as possible, open to new possibilities and employed a career counsellor through Reinvent Your Career to help me through the process. I decided to maintain a positive attitude through a very difficult job market, kept believing in myself and kept learning after every situation.

5. What are your hopes and aspirations for the future?

I hope my new role will be rewarding, that I will learn a lot and that I make a positive difference for my new organisation.
