Once you have started your professional career, you may realize your interest lies in a different field, thus prompting a career transition. Regardless of your personal reasons for changing careers, these tips can ensure your transition goes smoothly:

Seek support: If you don’t have the right support, going through a career transition likely will be extremely difficult. Find support by asking friends and colleagues for advice or seeking out a transition mentor to answer any questions you may have. You also can look for job placement and resume assistance services to help guide you.

Plan for the unexpected: During your transition process, you likely will experience situations and problems that are not ideal. Instead of letting these issues sneak up on you, try planning for them ahead of time. Keep an open mind about where your skills may be beneficial and explore career opportunities outside of the obvious to ensure you aren’t left jobless.

Return to school: Whether you have the necessary skills and education for your dream job or not, going back to school can help you look more appealing to employers. Online classes and weekend seminars are a great way to update your knowledge and demonstrate that you are familiar with the newest techniques within your target field.

Theodore “Ted” Catino, former co-CEO of Security National Automotive Acceptance Corporation and co-founder of GigSmart, has had a successful career as an entrepreneur over the past 30 years. In his free time, Ted Catino enjoys traveling the world, visiting places like Macau.

The peak tourist season in Macau lasts from May to September. During these summer months, temperatures hover between 82 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit and visitors enjoy spending their days relaxing on the beach. While the humidity and occasional typhoons during summer can keep some tourists away from Macau, the region is still a popular summer vacation destination for individuals from mainland China.

Macau experiences its off-season from January to March. These months see average temperatures in the mid-60s to low 70s and very minimal rainfall. Compared to many other locations around the world, winter in Macau is far from harsh and still can be a good time to visit for tourists who don’t plan on swimming. Unfortunately, despite being the region’s low season, visitors are unlikely to find discounts on accommodations.

The best times to visit Macau are in April and between October and December. Weather during spring and autumn is extremely pleasant, with average highs in the mid-70s and low 80s. While rainfall during these months is a bit higher than during winter, it is unlikely to sour a trip. Beaches still may be cold in April and between October and December, but visitors can enjoy numerous tours and sites around the city.
