“How do I talk about my previous experience when I am changing careers (function, industry, skill set etc)”
This question is becoming more common everyday. As the world we live changes at a faster rate, there are jobs that didn‘t exist two years ago that exist today. (Eg. All the specific DE&I roles created by companies). As time passes, more roles will be created which means many people will be upskilling or retooling their career.
All candidates should learn the following tools throughout the rest of your career. As change will be constant. You have to learn to know and articulate who you are. Which then allows you to create an ideal position (where you are going). That then allows you to market your previous experiences to your new path. It’s about thinking about your past differently.
Whether you are early in your career or a senior executive, you have experiences, skill sets and mindsets that can be marketed to your new direction. You just have to know your new direction!
What has been your career changing story? What was your previous career and where are / were you trying to go?
