“If you want to find a job that is really not like a job to you, then all of a sudden what surfaces is the best of what you’ve been. Capitalize on those skills you developed where you were and see how you can use those skills in another direction,” said Martin.

Martin said if you’re looking to change careers, make a list.

Leave behind whatever gives you a headache at your current job.

Focus on the parts you do like.
