Career Transitions

We believe career development is a life-long process and that career planning shouldn’t stop when you get your first job after college. We have compiled a few tips to get you started on your career transition. And while these tips are designed to help get you started, remember that our career consultants are available to provide you with more individualized assistance.

  • Different industries, same position – emphasize relevant skills and expertise and your ability to adapt to new cultures/situations easily.
  • Different position, same industry – emphasize knowledge base and exposure to the industry.
  • Different industry AND position – emphasize your transferable skills. Check out this handout on Transferable Skills.
