Being Flexible Brings New Opportunities

One of my clients is facing a layoff.  She’s been with the same company for more than thirty years.  For many people, such a transition would be devastating.  My client has kept a positive attitude.  Through networking, she’s gotten an interview in a new industry.  The transferable skills she’s used in retail environments will also work in banking.  Her challenge will be to convince interviewers that she can make the transition.  The first step is to be flexible enough to think you can make the change.  The next challenge in the interview is to convince the employer that you can do the job.  It’s never easy.  However, many workers make such transitions every day.  Give yourself more opportunities – stay flexible.
