Logic Of The Day: 01.08.2019.

Highlight Your Transferable Skills.
When trying to change careers, the best you can do is highlight transferable skill sets and use them as leverage to transition into your new industry.


Think about what skills your dream career requires, and highlight any and all experiences you have had with building those skills.

That’s what it takes to get a hiring manager to take a chance on you, even if you’re fresh to the industry.

For example, I started out my career as a lawyer, and while I didn’t like the day-to-day of my job, one thing I did like about the legal profession was the great attention to details in writing documents.

I developed strong attention to detail, and I was able to highlight those experiences in my profession as a psychologist to know my patients in depth, and help them for the better. And I really love what I do now.
