Tips for Applying for A Job in A New Industry
Be prepared to start from the bottom and be persistent. Those are two things to keep in mind when applying for a job in a new industry. In this episode of TIPS, David Harrison shares what he has learned from shifting to an entirely different career path.
Preparation is always key. When it comes to such a drastic change, expect to start from the bottom. David Harrison believes it is better to start at the bottom of a ladder you love climbing than to climb a ladder you don’t even like. Working and living in Australia opens up many opportunities and there are plenty of paths to choose from.
Then, to get your foot on the door, be persistent. Don’t be afraid of the “no.” Many people will discourage you. It’s hard to have faith in someone with no experience. It is also our tendency to mistrust people who change their minds. However, we should make it our goal to prove them wrong. Keep on going and don’t give up. If this career shift really matters to you, do everything you can to be noticed. Make yourself memorable by being persistent.
These are just a couple of tips for applying for a job in a new industry. Learn more about career changes and job interview tricks from other TIPS episodes. Good luck!
