Do you want to pivot from your existing career field into something totally new? Thinking about a new career but uncertain what direction you’d like to take? Trying to decide between getting a new job, or a whole new career? Not sure how to best represent your skills and interests?
In June, FlexJobs Career Coach Betsy Andrews gave us easy to follow, step-by-step ideas for discovering and weighing different career options. Choosing Your New Career Path (Part 1) helped wade through the questions and challenges of career change using FlexJobs’ four-step system for choosing a new career.
We most recently hosted the second webinar of our career pivoting series. FlexJobs was thrilled to be joined by the Founder and CEO of Bossed Up, Emilie Aries! Emilie shared how to evaluate and emphasize your existing transferable skill set, and use persuasive communication to position yourself for a new career, even if it’s in a totally new field.
