Many working women in India consider a career change at some point in their lives; A Step Above tweetchat on making career changes work.
Are you a woman considering a different field of work, or even a new role in your current field, for personal or professional reasons? In this chat we held on Twitter recently, women who have worked through a career change shared their thoughts on the experience – what motivated them to seek a change, what the challenges were, and how they’ve made it work.
We enjoyed having this chat and gaining diverse perspectives from women who have undertaken career changes, and shared their thoughts on making this transition work. We will be organising such chats regularly on Twitter, on alternate Wednesdays, do look out for the #StepAbove hashtag to participate and share your thoughts too.
