In the last few weeks, we've had some exciting activity elsewhere on the Internet — Jenni wrote an article and featured in a video for LinkedIn around her experience losing a job and leveraging that opportunity to get herself into a new career field. It's gone viral! So we thought we'd share part of it here on the blog for those who are hustling for their first break!
In the fall of 2008, like a lot of other people, I found myself out of job. But I had another challenge that other seasoned professionals didn’t have. I wasn’t just looking for any job, I was looking for a job in an industry that I had zero actual experience: marketing.
I made a conscious decision early in my search that I was done working jobs that drained me and left me asking, “Really, after all that hard work….is this it?” I knew that I wanted a job that lit me up inside and I was willing to do whatever it took to get it.
The journey from job loss to dream job doesn’t come easy, but it’s worth it. Here’s what I learned along the way and hopefully they’ll help you make the leap to the career that lights you up.
