Do you have advice for somebody wanting to change fields where he has no applied experience?
I currently work in Telecom in the engineering/planning side and I am interested in moving to the Marketing dept of my company. Unfortunately, I have no marketing experience - only a few courses from my undergrad. I do have some strong transferable skills. I have also 'interviewed' several people who currently work in our marketing group to learn about which positions would be the best fit based on my strengths.
My reasons for wanting the switch are:
- Learn more about the business
- Get closer to business strategy and the customer
- Increase my breadth of experience
Do you have any advice on how to convey this in my resume/covering letter?
