If you are about to make a decision to change career as an employee or as an entrepreneur, then you are probably a bit vulnerable right now. You can have emotions that could inhabit you such as anger, anxiety, stress, excitement, pleasure and even a little bit of terror.

These states can sometimes make you believe that you have good ideas for a career change, but also can bring you several problems without you realizing it.

6 Mistakes to Avoid When Changing Jobs
Like avoiding making unwise choices? Here are the six most common mistakes to consider:

Do not have a plan in place. 

Even if you have a clearly thought out strategy to change careers, it may take a few more months to complete. If you just lose or leave your job without any plan in place, then you may be facing an even longer and more stressful transition period.

Modify your career because you hate your job. 

Do not put your career together with your work. You may be in bad company, but not in the wrong profession. Do not let a bad job make you think about changing your career path. Determine if it is your job or career that you hate before making a radical decision.

Make a career change for money. 

Do not forget the old saying that money can not buy happiness when you feel attracted by money towards another career. Even if another profession offers more money than your domain, be careful on these funds issue. If you change job and hate it, then you will spend the extra money to relieve your stress or boredom.

Changing careers because of pressure from others. 

If you love your work and have a pleasant life, then you do not have to change your job because of what others can say about you. Your parents, spouse or friends do not have to report to your work every day. While you can certainly respect their opinions, do not let these beliefs dictate your career choices.

Change job to impress someone you know who has succeeded. 

This, not your human nature to compare you to your friends and family members. So do not make career changes too fast because you are jealous of another's success in a particular field. Put your bad emotions aside and ask yourself if you really want to be happy in the shoes of others or else be glad that others succeed.

Look for a new career without improving your skills. 

Before making changes in your career, why not take the time to prepare yourself. Do your homework in the area you are interested in and look for additional training or knowledge that you will need.
