Where to get guidance on major career change

 
#1 Where to get guidance on major career change

Steve Pantony

I work in the Aviation industry in an operational role. However, I have had considerable experience in IT visioning, strategy and implementation, also I am just completing my MSc IT. I would like to become an IT Strategy consultant. Can anyone suggest a company who can guide me in this quest in terms of how best to present myself/CV to get a foothold. At the moment I am not even getting past the first hurdle.

Steve,

You are requesting the same sort of information I asked for in my message. My posting was made on the 13/06 and I still haven’t had any pointers.

TC.

Hi - Peter Harrison Careers service (look up on web) is supposed to be amazing - it literally writes your applications and coaches you for interviews. I couldnt afford it (£3k) i think, but ive heard it guarantees you a job, in any case when you email them they send you a free (useful) summary of advice

Hope that helps

Steve, I do quite a lot of career consulting and my experience leads me to suggest two simple choices:If you would like to fit a given template, hire a company to mould/coach you to present the desired profile. A better choice would perhaps be to define your core competencies; Consulting; Transferable (those that separate you from the herd); Personal/Social(the person behind the skill set); and Investment Potential (why a company would view you as a safe investment) - Your skill set is impressive - Think of companies who could use your savvy and then consider a consulting firm that serves those clients.

No-one can guarantee a job - Much like dating it all revolves around a good fit - If you appreciate your innate/learned ability, experience and personality - Look for a home where you can fully invest yourself and grow at the same time.

A career counsellor can help you with the definition process, accurate resume structure and guidance in making up the shortfall in your skill set. Please avoid 'cosmetic makeover' firms....

Hope this makes sense
