Building an Action Plan: Transitions from Academia/Research to Industry

As someone who has made major career transitions and relocations, and helped clients do the same in the US and Europe, I’m well-versed in what’s necessary to make the leap. We’ll discuss an action plan to create opportunities, sail past the competition and land your dream job.

Topics will include how to:

  • write a cv/resume that has them searching Amazon for a red carpet to roll out, for you!
  • highlight transferable skills from academia/research to industry
  • land a position in a new geographic area AKA the world really is your oyster
  • show up as a confident candidate
  • seek the Next Big Thing in your career

Bring your questions, and let’s build an action plan to make your dream transition happen. Look forward to meeting you.  Joanne Yawitz MBA, MCRP
