Whether starting a new career or making a career change, the process can be terrifying. There are ways to ease the transition. Learn as much as possible about your new career, especially before leaving a current career. Look at how the change will affect your finances, short term and long term. Check to see if you need additional training or education. One good way to see if you like it is to try a new position out as a part-time experience or as an intern. See Credit.com.
For those going through a divorce, there are forms of alimony that can provide financial assistance through this transition.
