Downsizing Your Life

Sometimes, moving down the career ladder, instead of up it, is an option worth considering.  Downsizing your life could be a choice you make. I know more than a few people who have decided to opt out of a fast track career for a job that’s less stressful or for a job that’s more fun – and for a more simply lifestyle.

In other cases, especially in a recession, it can make sense to look at alternative job options and voluntarily downsize your career. In fact, some companies are offering employees the opportunity, if you can call it that, to take a lower level position instead of a lay-off.

If you’re considering the possibility of downsizing, by choice or otherwise, here’s advice on how you decide if you can move down the career ladder including evaluating options, figuring out whether you can live on less pay, how to revamp your resume, and how to apply for jobs that you’re considered overqualified for.
