I recently moved to California from Brazil to pursue my career as a marketing professional and explore new opportunities. I've worked in the health market for six years and in the construction/real estate industry for twelve years, and I'm passionate about marketing and eager to expand my experience.
However, I'm finding it difficult to transition to a new industry, and I feel discouraged when recruiters and hiring managers suggest that I stick to industries where I have prior experience. Where is the growth mindset of the companies that want employees with a growth mindset? Are we doomed to work on the same thing for the rest of our lives? The world offers so many options and life is so short to be doing what we chose when we left university!
I strongly believe that companies with a growth mindset value employees who are adaptable, creative, and eager to learn. I have a proven track record of quickly learning and excelling in new environments, and I'm confident that my diverse background can be an asset to any team.
I'm passionate about marketing, and I'm not looking to change my profession. Rather, I'm seeking to explore new industries and gain fresh perspectives. I believe that life is too short to limit ourselves to a single industry, and I'm excited to see what opportunities lie ahead.
Any thoughts or suggestions on how to successfully transition to a new industry?
Thank you for your support and encouragement!
