Many of us dream about changing careers. But what separates the dreamers from the doers? Do successful career changers possess certain traits or do certain things? I recently met with two career changers to learn more about what worked for them during their transitions to new careers.
Barry Kleiman left a 25-year career as an Equity Trader after being downsized in June 2008. It wasn't very long before he realized that the job as he had known it no longer existed and he wasn't going to land on The Street again. He started working with Career Counselor and Coach and President of CareerCounsel, Linsey Levine, in September 2008, and became a small business owner in March 2009.
