I have obtained a double Masters in Education and Counseling. I transitioned last year from the world of education to the private sector as an admissions advisor. This role is really a combination of account manangement, sales, and customer sucess. This is really a B2C role.
I have been very successful in my role, meeting my quotas and exceeding my target numbers. I have even become the team leader and mentor to new hires.
I have been actively looking for a new role for several months. I get through the first two interviews but never make it to the final rounds. Many times the interviewer will comment how my previous role doesn't really transition to coporate, even though my current role demonstrates that I can learn and find success.
I don't know how I can find a new role. I know there is some hesitancy because I don't have B2B background, but I am highly educated and a quick learner. How can I show hiring managers and recruiters I am the right person for the role?
