Caught of Guard:

My dream career is to become a pediatrician and I am currently taking pre med classes. However, my reality is far from it. You see have been working at retail store since I was 16 years old helping my family. A few days, ago, my friend took me to a networking event filled with students that have a background in medicine. I felt so out of place and to make matters worse one of the faculty members who is in charge of the event made a rude comment saying I was not willing to advance myself because of retail background. Really!!!! I was so angry and beyond hurt. How do I use my retail experience to my advantage to network into the medical field?

I would suggest leaving the title on, but add some information to your resume, cover letter, or both. On your resume, explain - in a line or two - what you're interested in doing next, why you want to take a new direction and how you can contribute to the new role/industry. A summary at the top of your resume would work - you can even use some of the same language in the subject line of your email (it should be THAT short). Provide a longer and more thorough explanation in your cover letter. Don't change your title, as you don't want to be seen as someone who misrepresents herself.

Good luck & let us know if you have any other questions! Marijoy

I wouldn't drop the title although some employers will want to know why your interested in the change. Titles are immediate skill indicators and as a VP your a leader and that's a transferrable skill into any industry.

Have you considered family planning or counseling. Rehabilitation counselors are in high demand.

Hi Robin, I think there are lots of options. But would be good to understand why you want the change. Do you want to get away from working with kids and see how those skills translate, or do you like working with kids but just don't want to be in a daycare setting? If its moving away from kids, then I think caregiving of many different ages works really easy (big new career paths in elder care as the Boomers get older fyi). What you'll want to do is think about the skills that you put to use on a given day. I am sure you deal with parents as well so that would suggest conflict resolution, planning, communication, etc. I presume you have to be organized as well. There are lots of administrative jobs that would require those skills and experience. You would just want to help an interviewer translate. (fyi: my wife used to manage a bunch of brokers/traders on wall street then decided to be a stay-at-home mom. Her view was there was VERY little difference in the two jobs...).

If you are looking to stay involved with kids, but just a different venue then you might want to think about school related jobs. Even if you don't want to be a teacher there are a ton of other aspects in administration or librarians, or the like. Heres an interest take also from our friends at CareerBuilder. Some of these might require some schooling but that isn't as hard to get done these days as you might think:

Hope this helps your thinking. great question - I'll look forward to what better informed Jobcasers than I might suggest.... Good luck, Fred

Once in a lifetime opportunity: WIN A CANDY FACTORY!

David Klein, one of the original inventors of Jelly Belly jelly beans, is hosting a treasure hunt with a sweet grand prize: your own candy factory! One player from each state will find a golden ticket, giving them $5,000 and an opportunity to fulfill a childhood dream of becoming the next Willy Wonka.

Although this factory doesn't include your own gaggle of Oompa Loompas, it does give the grand prize winner full ownership of the building and a candy-making course at the University of Wisconsin-Madison!

Sounds like one lucky winner is going to have quite an interesting #careerchange in their future!!! :)

What products would you produce in your OWN candy factory?!

What you do if you 55 and laid off?

After working at the company for many years I was laid off. Although I have experience it is hard to find a job. A phone interview is ok but not in person. Employers do not believe that humans can learn after 50. Because I am a human I do not know EVERYTHING but if you could give me a chance I will learn and I will do well. After applying to so many positions and 2.5 years in I give up. If the economy does not want me so be it. If you see me in the park or sleeping under the bridge just know I am not an addict. I am a hardworking person but I am too old to be hired and too old to for your 20-30 culture. I would look for something else but frankly, the tech is all I know. Thank you for your thoughts. #ageism #laidoff #python #careerchange #training #technology #certification #jobsearch #womanintech
