In contemplating a career more into a new industry and a role you haven't done before, there are a number of challenges:
- You lack a track record in the new role
- You lack familiarity with the industry you're aiming to move into
- You won't have built up a network of people in the industry you're seeking to move into
- Persuading an employer take you on may prove a challenge
THE GOOD NEWS:
There are intermediary steps that can help you accomplish the near-impossible.
In this post, I draw on a chart created by Richard Bolle, author of 'What color is your parachute', which provides a simple map to help you consider your options.
