Career transitions are an essential part of the evolution of one's professional life. Transitions can take place at any time and for a variety of reasons. In this article, I review career transitions in the context of my own experiences and offer some advice and guidelines for making a career transition. The article also reviews what opportunities exist for career development and how that can lead to new and future prospects.
