Every company relies heavily on the satisfaction of their clients to ensure their continued success. If you are detail oriented, have the desire to be an advocate for clients and a strong desire to see your employer thrive, then customer service would be a very good fit for you. Speaking to current customers and potential customers daily, you will have the ability to greatly influence the public view of your firm. Success in an entry level customer service position will quickly open doors for you to begin to rise through department into a supervisory or management role.
If you are more interested in working with technology, then there are many different paths that you have to select from for your new career. A position as an engineer offers you the challenge of creating new automated solutions for tech based issues. Data engineers design, build and maintain the massive systems and software that store and compute.
A combination of technical and people skills might lead you to a project management role. These jobs oversee and manage all of the employees who collaborate to bring ideas and concepts to reality in the IT world. Some managers are more technical and contribute a portion of the deliverable work while others simply manage the engineers and others who are collaborating. These managers are focused more on the big picture and ensure that deadlines are met and tasks are completed as per the design and plan.
If this is the year that you want to improve or reinvent your career, then spend just a short time to find out more about all of the great opportunities available.
