Great post and right on time. Im seriously right in the beginning stages of figuring out how to get a foot in the door. I’m transitioning from basically sales as a Mortgage Broker for about 8 years then a stay at home Dad basically for the last 4 years- 3 kids total but the 2 little ones are now 8 and 9 so – and Its just about time to start my next career since they’re past the “little and costly for daycare-stage” and couldn’t be happier at this point, then to land a dream Job of working in the industry that I only could have dreamed about when I first started smoking about 24 years ago now…. ANYWAY….. I just wanted to thank you for this post. It was Informative, well written, organized and good key points! Thanks for giving me the last nudge I needed to start the process!!
