If you've spent years establishing your career in a specific corner of the tech industry, changing jobs may be the furthest thing from your mind. But you may not want to rule it out.
Ask yourself: Are you truly satisfied with what you are doing? Are there any other challenges you want to tackle? Could there be opportunities out there that you may not have considered?
That answer to that last question is increasingly likely to be "yes" these days. In many parts of the country, companies are hiring workers with advanced tech skills for a variety of jobs, such as building websites and mobile apps. In particular, there are a significant amount of career opportunities in Houston related to these fields.
Don't worry—even if it's been a while since your last move, it is never too late to change your career. Start by reaching out through social media to former co-workers and other connections who may have gone off into different industries. Through conversations with them, you might find an opportunity or two that suits your needs and fits your skills.
Sure, it can be difficult to leave a job you have worked for many years. But the tech industry is changing rapidly. To some, this might suggest instability in employment. But many others recognize the potential for new opportunities around every corner.
