    Default Career Shifts/Changes

    Something piqued my curiosity after reading the "Post your careers" thread.

    In countries that either desire qualifications and/or experience, how did you manage career changes/shifts in career focus? What made you decide to change careers, and how did you make it happen?

    I'm going into my third interview with Waddell & Reed financial advisors.

    Apparently I bumped into one of the higher ups from the firm at a Jax chamber of commerce event, and he was impressed enough to give my business card to the managing principle.

    She called me up out of the blue asking if I would like to interview.

    NETWORKING PAYS OFF. DO IT.

    I will have to pay for/study for the Series 7 and 66 and the Florida insurance exam, but I should pass those as long as I study.

    My college degree is in Political Science.

    Don't assume your degree limits you.

    By leveraging skills you already possess which are applicable to the new field. Employers dont read between the lines, you have to show them you've got the right skill set by clearly spelling it out. It also shows you understand what the new job involves which surprisingly a lot of candidates dont.
