Have you been doing the same work for awhile now? Are you looking to transition to a new industry but aren’t really sure where to start? Here is what you need to know about job searching in a new industry.
7 Steps to Transition into a New Industry Faster than You Thought Possible:
Step 1: Believe It Will Happen
Visualize yourself already in the dream career. What does it feel like? Do this morning and night. Create a vision journal and keep reminding yourself that you can and will make a move to your dream industry happen.
Step 2: Get Clear On Your Transferable Skills
Transferable skills are the talents a person gathers throughout their career and through other real life experiences which can be applied to a new job or a new career in a new industry. These talents might seem insignificant when a person is looking for new employment however, they’re often just what an employer is looking for in a new employee.
The interpersonal, communication, and organizational skills a person obtains while undertaking volunteer work, playing a team sport, or completing a university degree might not be listed within a particular job description, but they are the essential elements to employment in the current labor market.
