CAREER TRANSITIONS – FLIP THE SCRIPT
Presented by: Lauren Milligan, CEO & Founder of ResuMAYDAY
Career transitions are challenging, but not impossible. Candidates moving from one industry/position to another are competing against others who currently work in those roles or industries; the goal is to illustrate to employers that your transferable skills outweigh direct experience. In this presentation, we’ll cover real life examples of people who have successfully transitioned from one industry to another: how they identified and capitalized on transferable skills, and how they presented these skills on paper and in the interview.
