Clearing away the career change fog

Q: I’m thinking about a career change. Well, to be honest, I’m thinking about thinking about a career change. I don’t even know where to start. Can you give me any pointers?

Q: I’ve to do a ten-minute presentation at a job interview in two weeks’ time – ‘how will you improve this company over the next three years?’ The problem is it’s my own job I’m doing it for. Well, not quite, but I’ve been acting in the position since my boss got ill eight months ago. She’s not coming back.
