From One Field to Another
By: Nurys Harrigan
The Career Connector

December 2015

So you’ve decided to change career paths—congratulations! It’s exciting to embark on a new adventure, regardless of age or experience. It can also be overwhelming, leaving you at a loss as to how to get started.

Q: What is the best way to show how experience in one field can translate to success in another; for example, going from teaching to project management? - Joe O., Arlington, VA

A: Years of experience in one field don’t have to prevent you from moving into another. Even if you only worked for six months or two years, there are likely transferrable skills you have that can move seamlessly into the next role. Whether this is your spot-on strategy knowhow or your writing wherewithal, identifying your top transferrable skills will serve you well and act as a great first step in moving towards your dream career.
