Many individuals at some point in their career find themselves debating a career change, but fear that they have pigeon-holed themselves into a particular industry or role. I am going to speak about my career journey, and how I made the switch from a corporate to a startup company. I will talk about my experience in both roles, and transferable skills that apply to both positions. I will also give tips to people who are feeling lost or directionless in their current career path, and want to make a change but do not know where to start.
