How Do You Know it’s Time to Change Careers?

That’s a question I’m about to answer. On Feb. 13, I leave behind my professional journalism career to become an industry analyst and researcher.

How did I know it was time? I was frustrated as a journalist because the economics of publishing have changed to the point where publishers don’t have the money to invest in staffs of editors anymore. A trade magazine is now done by one editor in many cases, and that doesn’t allow for quality work. I felt I could no longer do work up to my professional standards.

So it was time to try something else. I think anger and frustration are the main motivators of job switches and career switches, what do you think?
