When it comes to finding meaningful work, relationships are in & resumes are out! Turns out if you’re looking to make a change to more fulfilling work, your paper resume is actually pretty irrelevant in the career change process.
Aligning your experience with a new role or a new industry is possible. You can have a meaningful, fulfilling career that pays well, but trolling job boards with your resume isn’t going to make it happen.
What you’ll learN
- Why building relationships will get you farther than your resume
- How to align your experience with a new role and pivot your career
- How building relationships can help you test drive new career opportunities
- Where resumes actually matter in the career change process
My favorite part of the career change boot camp was actually having some of those conversations and getting feedback and positive feedback about strengths. And to me that was key, because in that moment, I realized that my network not only is a great for finding the next role, it also is helpful to… they help you remind you who you are and who you will be in your next role, even if the current circumstances are not ideal.
If you're looking for a change, if you're somebody who is feeling unsatisfied in your work, and you're not necessarily necessarily sure why that is yet, I feel like, that's a great way to kind of figure that out, just because of how the program is structured. I don't think that I would have necessarily gotten to where I am now without the program, especially when it came to the resume and the interviewing portion, because I feel like those are the hardest two areas for someone who's trying to switch into something that's completely different. Having that coaching and that information, and, you know, all those resources available to me to prep me for to be able to present myself in a way where, you know, I'm talking to the hiring managers, and they're like, hey, well, you know, she doesn't have, you know, experience in this, but, you know, being able to explain why I'm still a valuable person and why, you know, my other skills are still good fits for, you know, the job that I was applying for, I don't think I would have had that tools and that skill set and, you know, the roadmaps and the guidance that I would have, that I had with being part of the program. So I'm super, super grateful.
