I often speak with clients that are convinced that their career experience isn’t relevant for a different kind of job or in a new career. That is a BIG misconception that your, “old career experience” will not be helpful or is just dead weight as you look to reposition yourself for a new career. It is helpful, but it’s HOW you pitch it, to demonstrate the value that it adds to your new job or career direction. The keys to your success are your mindset, belief in your abilities, and your attitude to continual learning. You already have a lot to offer in your next job or new career. I encourage you to be visible as you transition to your new job or career and take the opportunity to join online professional networks and events. Talking about yourself positively and building your professional network will help attract new career opportunities and supporters.
