Career pivoting is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I knew rejection would happen but dang it hurts. The hours of redoing your resume. The cold reach outs to get ghosted. It’s a tough world out there. All it takes is one to take a chance on me. Im just trying to improve my quality of life. I just want to use my transferable skills to recruit the next generation of talent (I work with them currently) to help your business. Just asking for one chance. 🙏

Additional Posts in Career Pivot

For those who have successfully made a career pivot into a new field, is it recommended to apply for the equivalent title in the new field (i.e. Senior to Senior) or is it more effective to apply for a title that is a step back from your current role (i.e. Senior to Junior)? I’ve heard arguments supporting either strategy but am interested in hearing about the personal successes that people have had.

I’m excited about the one I accepted so wouldn’t want to withdraw without another offer, but this one would be a title promotion vs. lateral, & a $30K+ raise over the one I accepted.
