    Since I was let go from my company, it has been very stressful and difficult to move forward. The relationship between your spouse, because you’re relying on their income and your siblings asking when will you get your next job is very painful mentally. It’s tough on a single income.

    I am in the process of finding the job I want to do and throwing a broad net which can use my transferable skills. To touch on the transferable skills, you can say you have this to offer, but so does the other thousands of applicants. You can only come up with a limited ways to state how your experience can help a company. Other factors include the lack of experience you have for your ‘Dream Job”. We are caught in a catch 22 situation…how can we gain the experience if no one will take you on. Networking may help in some cases, for me personally, I have hit the brick wall many times.

    For someone with my experience, I thought my skills would be very valuable to certain sectors of industry I am interested, but trying to get the foot in the door is the problem. If I was to take a a course/training, what would be the chances of getting the job…? What about the Financial burden, calling recruiters (if you can find the right ones) , searching on the job boards (perhaps a waste of time because they are unreliable). I am still trying to see the light at the end of my tunnel…

    It was refreshing to read your article and how it applies to Chemists as they transition to Project Management. If you do not posses an MBA it becomes a skill that you acquire over time as opportunities are presented. Here is another article written from a chemists perspective that adds to the discussion.
