Hi Fish Fam! I have a pretty exciting opportunity/ interview with a rapidly growing life sciences business consulting company. It’s a bit of a stretch in terms of my industry experience, how can I best position myself to be an attractive candidate? Looking for pro tips from fish that may have made this type of transition before.

Just curious.

To everyone interviewing, to hopefully calm some nerves: The process is really long. Not hearing back from the recruiter for a few days, or even weeks, is completely normal. There can be multiple weeks between rounds and then multiple weeks before you get feedback. Don’t think too much into it. There is no indication of positive or negative by no response. On average it takes 3+ months, and usually 2+ application attempts, to get hired. Good luck! 🍀
