Set Realistic Goals and Plan Strategically:
Define both short-term and long-term goals. Develop a strategic plan that breaks down your objectives into manageable steps. This plan serves as a roadmap for your job change or career transition.

Practical steps, such as updating your resume and refining your networking strategy, are crucial. Keeping your resume and LinkedIn profile current is essential, understanding what recruiters look for.
Networking and Seeking Guidance:
Strategically leverage your professional network—it can’t be emphasized enough. Connect with mentors, industry professionals, or join relevant groups to gain insights and guidance during your career transition.
