Switching industries? Don’t start over.
Forget the entry-level job
Transitioning from subject matter expert to executive leadership looks a little different if you don’t want your boss’s job. If you’ve realized that you don’t want to stay in your current industry, don’t despair! You don’t need to go back to an entry-level position and start over – in fact, you shouldn’t. The truth is that even if you try to go that route, companies are often looking for less experienced workers to fill those roles. And even if you have unrelated experience, that still counts as experience. Don’t sell yourself short.
