It’s not just back to school for students.
It’s not uncommon: often there’s a point in someone’s career where they’re thinking about making a change, but with that moment comes a flood of questions and thoughts:
- What does my resume look like though?
- I should probably start networking again.
- When was the last time I had a job interview?
- Do I even have the necessary skills to make a change?
- I’m so out of the loop, where do I even start?
