One of the trickiest parts about making a career switch is having to show someone that you’ve done A, B, and C in one industry or profession and that you’ll be able to do X, Y, and Z in a new one. You basically have to convince somebody to take a chance on you.
Career coach Win Sheffield walks us through how a good story can make your transferable skills stand out—no convincing required. We cover how to find stories throughout your career, what to include, and how to best use stories when you’re networking, interviewing, and writing your resume.
