But it doesn’t have to be!
Before you start wandering around town looking at the cards in newsagents’ windows, have a sit-down and a good think. What do you want to do?
If you’ve had a happy and successful career, it might be a good idea to find similar work, on a lighter level. Maybe you have a completely different interest you like to pursue. Why not start by talking things through with an experienced recruiter – there are some out there who cover just about all the bases. If it’s a question of finding someone who can build your confidence at the same time, we have a suggestion.
