Employers are placing a higher priority on skills as they seek out qualified candidates who can jump into roles. For professionals looking to change careers, some of the fastest-growing jobs in the U.S. are attracting workers from a variety of related fields. And workers who are able to show how they’ve developed soft skills, such as leadership, will be able to highlight their ability to succeed in different roles, regardless of their current industry, according to job search experts. Check out their tips on navigating a career switch right now.
Short term? My best advice for career shifters is to deal with this transition by taking a mental break first…then internalize, realize, and visualize. Try to identify your relevance in terms of value to a prospective employer, internalize on what your passions are and some transferable skills and accomplishments to relay to hiring managers, a solid resume and some email communication templates (or cover letter), and a lot of patience and willpower. A good rule of thumb for the job hunter seeking a new role in a new industry is to identify your transferable skills and portray those first on your LinkedIn profile and resume. Reverse engineer your career path from your ideal job’s description and see what you have and what needs up-skilling.
Think the long game. Have a vision of your dream job. Think of your job drivers. What’s important to you? Time, money, benefits, 401(k), location, product offerings, company image, culture, values, progressive versus traditional setting, remote versus on-location, passionate project opportunities, etc. Each is different for each person. What motivates you? What’s your passion? What can you do that will make you happy in 2 weeks, 3 months, a year?
