For those of you who have worked for more than a handful of companies, or changed industries, do you make an active effort to keep in touch with previous coworkers or managers? If so, how often do you reach out? Would love to hear some different perspectives.

It’s something I need to be better at. Meet up about every 6 months for coffee/lunch. Reach out to them on their birthday and also during the holidays. Use LinkedIn but having their phone # is better.

Ex healthcare workers in Tech/Sales Engineering/ Healthcare consulting;
I have my masters in nursing/FNP (1 yr) making <K70 (Indiana) due to low patient census in my role. No desire for a different FNP job nor to return to bedside nursing (RN 5 yrs). I have heard of some individuals with remote positions making >K100 with little to no experience in tech or consulting after doing a boot camp or cert?

I have a quandary to share. My work exp has been tech heavy, starting as a software developer for 8 years; outgrew that. Then for the last 4 years, DevOps, specializing in the Cloud, IaC and GitOps. The tech parts (sans human) feel empty sometimes, and I want to try out transitioning into product. As DevOps, I have loved my share of helping internal customers (dev teams) as well as being an advisor. I love unsticking people. Is it possible to market that for job desc that asks for mgmt exp?

I’ve been working in marketing/advertising for a few years now, and I would love to move into something internal where I can utilize the organizational, process driven skills I’ve honed over the years in account management. Ive had others suggest moving into a project or resource management role in either tech or corporate construction— wondering if anyone here does that and could chat with me about their day to day.

I'm considering pivoting to copywriting because that's the part of my role I'm best at -- a lot of the account management stuff is draining, but I can whip out social and marketing copy quickly & I enjoy it. Wondering if anyone has insight / leads on making the jump from accounts to the copy side when applying for jobs? 5 YOE, 3 in-agency with a mix of automotive and pharma + a side gig as a published author with muliple books (hoping that'll help on the creative / copy end?)
