Dear Experts, What's the best advice for a job seeker to re-position for a new industry? Given that job seekers are limited by an inflated labor market, shortage of jobs and collapse of certain industries, many are forced and very willing to consider taking a step or two down in position title to rebuild a career in a different sector. What are some good ways recruiters can help their candidates capture the attention of hiring managers in a cover letter and resume to avoid being dismissed as both overqualified in job level and underexperienced in industry? How also can candidates be better prepared to convey commitment and mitigate the justifiably perceived risk that, if hired, they will turn and jump ship if they are not promoted quickly enough, or a higher level / higher paying position becomes available elsewhere, or when the failing industry that they're leaving turns around? Or is it a bad practice to take a risk on such candidates? Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
