Managing Career Transitions – Career Pivoting for Seasoned Marketers
It is common for early career professionals to pivot their focus and direction at least once, but what about the more established marketers? When you’ve created a name and a personal brand for yourself in a certain area of the field, making a major change in the same industry – or trying something completely different – requires a little more thought. You are in a different stage of life with different responsibilities. A major change (or even a moderate change) holds more risk.
Our speaker, David Bernardino will lead a discussion about making mid-career transitions. Based on his own experience going first from CPG to B2B marketing, and then from the client side to the start-up agency world, he will walk through his experience dealing with these transitions. Bernardino will highlight tips and techniques that he’s learned during a long career in the marketing world.
- Discuss how to think about mid-career pivots
- Discuss ways to approach a mid-career pivot, including potential resources to aid in the development of your own plan.
