Thoughts on a career in change management? Specifically next project would be workday. I could learn the technical side through the certification but I’m debating a full blown career as a change person, but want to know pros and cons and any thoughts!

Pros and cons are similar to those of any specialty. It’s a matter of what your interests are. If you truly have a passion for the human element side of change as opposed to the technical side, then this is the field you may want to consider pursuing. I went from a PM specialty to focusing now on OCM/culture transformations. My passion has always been about people - hence why I switched.

@OP: generally speaking, no. But I think there could easily be an argument for change practitioners to get paid much higher in certain industries where change is highly sponsored.

Currently in OCM. Pros: knowing my work is helping my client and their teams feel less stressed about a change Cons: no effing clue what my exit path looks like. Boutique consulting? In house? Who knows!

Hi! I’m majoring in IT & don’t know what I want to go into once I graduate. I’ve been set on getting an internship but it looks like I’m too late to land one for summer 2022 so I’m going to prepare for summer 2023. I’m anxious because I have no experience being 20 years old. I have 4-5 years of customer service experience but so does every student. What internships are more accepting of beginners? Project management, technical account Manager, Systems engineer maybe? Still learning the field.
