THE BLUF - I know this is going to be a big generalization but I was just wondering if this applies when reading or creating job descriptions and overcoming attempts to change industry sectors (say going from financial to pharma).
In my search, I often see job postings that I could and would like to do, except for the dreaded "must have 7 years Consumer Goods or High Tech or Banking or Whatever" experience. Does the 90/10 rule still apply?
Lots of career advisors talk about hyping one's transferable skills. Are there really any effective strategies to help one get in the door and beyond the alleged industry experience criteria?
