Is Changing Careers at 40 Too Late?

October 30, 2020

If 2020 has revealed anything, it’s that humans are incredibly adaptable to circumstances outside of their control. This doesn't mean, however, that these changes are easy. 2020 has been an incredibly difficult year for many people across the globe, and Canada is no different. Many Canadians have found themselves wondering if changing careers at 40 is too late. The good news is that it is not.

Before the pandemic, there had been an uptick in people in their 40s (and older) making career pivots for several reasons. It’s becoming quite common that, regardless of their jobs or careers, people are making drastic changes later in their professional lives. No matter what’s led you to consider changing careers, know that AlphaLogic Career College can help you get the new skills and education you need to make a confident career pivot. Here’s how.

It’s never too late to change careers

Many of us have been taught since we were young that there’s one path: finish school, earn a degree in one field, get a job in that field, stay there. While this may have worked for some, it’s far from the norm for many Canadians—and increasingly common elsewhere around the globe.

Nowadays, people change careers relatively frequently, especially when compared to just a decade or two ago. Changing careers at 40 is far from uncommon, though that doesn’t make it any less daunting; changing careers at any point can impart trepidation, let alone well into one’s life. The good news is that since career pivots are becoming more common, there are more resources available to those who wish to do so.

AlphaLogic is at the forefront of helping those in the London, Ontario, area get the education and skills they need to confidently pursue new career opportunities in a variety of fields, including:

  • The automotive industry
  • Administration
  • Medical office assistance
  • Customer service excellence
