I have, for the first time, continually been told I was "too experienced" for positions where I met all of the qualifications and was very interested. No matter how well I may do in the few Interviews I receive, the strength of my references, testimonial letters, resume or how relevant the portfolio exemplifying my experience may be, this is an ongoing challenge. As a woman over 40, I have been reading this is very common. Even if HR asks me about salary or 'title' allocated to the role, and I assure them that I am fine taking less than I have previously earned and am not concerned with 'titles' only the role and company itself, I am left back where I started, nowhere. Some people have told me that, despite my willingness to take a pay cut, some companies are required to pay a certain salary that aligns with the level of the person they hire, making my age and experience a financial liability. If that is the case, that limits the range of positions I could even hope of procuring. I am unsure how to diminish my experience, go back in time on my age or undo being a woman or what else I can proactively do to allay any of these obstacles and procure roles I am more than capable of performing. Has anyone else faced this and, if so, can they offer any advice as to what my options may be? I have hired multiple Job and Life 'Coaches', had experts redo my LinkedIn, Resume, Cover Letter and assist in making my Portfolio look beautiful, yet even these actions have had no impact in my ability to change the inevitable outcome. Thank you for any suggestions! #jobsearch #advice #women #careerchange

During my divorce, and after a 44 year spot free record, I now carry a couple of MD charges on my background that will be expunged in 3 years. With out having a vehicle at the moment, I have been looking for WFH opportunities with-in the medical community that I have been familiar with for the last 20+ years. I realize that may no longer be an option for me at this time, which may just be what forces me into another industry. I am always willing to learn new things and looking for a place where I can put in to use the 20+ years of customer service I also have under my belt. Would appreciate any information!! Thanks in advance. #jobsearch #advice #healthcare #careerchange #interview

I have a bachelors degree in ABA and I’m working on a masters in other psychology. But what else can I apply my bachelors of science to? Because it doesn’t earn me anything in ABA anymore and I don’t want to do ABA now anyway. I love the ABA concept but I don’t like the way it is used and I’d love to apply it to another place. #jobsearch #advice #careerchange #education #healthcare #careeradvice #ABA #psychology #bachelors

Hi Samatha, Well, I can understand where you are coming from; I also studied ABA in the past and practiced as a behavioral analyst technician in the space. As you know, in ABA, you get a vast knowledge of the learning theory. So depending on where you see yourself and find the most fulfilling is key. Navigate further into healthcare, special needs teaching, even in government sectors, as an FBI analyst. Also, if you are still in school, reach out to your advisor, and I'm sure they can help you source some significant additional roles where you can still take the concepts you learn and know and apply them in a different space, along with learning even more. Best wishes moving forward!

A little over a year ago I decided to have a career change. I decided to do an online course UX/UI design. When I started I had no idea what I was doing much less any computer skills. We were asked as students to pick a problem we wanted to solve. ANYTHING... My son was 14 and he has autism. The problem I wanted to solve was to help him be more independent. As of today, I am still working on this project and it is growing into a massive project. I created a working prototype and it has helped over 57 families that have helped me with research. Yet I sit here trying to get a job in the field and I feel like I am not being taken seriously in interviews or on my resume.

What you’ve learned from past jobs and life experiences is incredibly useful to land your next job. And if you want your next job to be in a new industry, you must harness those past skills and transfer them to a new role. Follow these steps:

  1. Decide what you do well (and enjoy doing) — Consider past work experiences. What do you excel at doing, and what do you enjoy doing? Write this info down.

  2. Make a list of your job duties — Create a list of your current and past job duties. What have your responsibilities been?

  3. Record your accomplishments — Create another list of specific successes you’ve accomplished — and include any specific data or information.

  4. Use this information to craft a NEW resume for the NEW role you want — Once you find a job listing for a role you’ve never had, create a custom resume WITH THE INFO YOU GATHERED in steps 1-3. Then you can use this new resume for other job opportunities in this new industry as well.

Are you looking for a new career path?
COMMENT BELOW with:

a. Your current or last job
b. The new job or career path you want

I’ll reply to your comment with ideas about transferrable skills you can highlight to get your new job! #jobsearch #CareerChange #resume
