- Leverage the halo effect. Recognize that if you’ve been successful in one field, others are likely to view you as being excellent all around and a great candidate in another field.
- Make use of your advantages. Take stock of the advantages you’ve built up over the years such as connections that can get you a foot in the door.
- Find opportunities where inexperience is a virtue such as companies looking for a major turnaround.
