In this episode of the SixFigureStart Career Coaching Radio Show, I answered questions on job search after a 6-year employment gap, job search when you’re older, breaking into the finance industry and finding a mentor or sponsor:
Mathew asks: My delima is that I have been out of work for about 6 years now, and I wonder if I’m getting too old? or if I will encounter problems trying to get back into the workforce. I would like a six figure salary, working in the health care industry. Any advice?
Nylia asks: My current most pressing career-related question is how do I get back into the Finance? I completed a Post – Bacc Business Cert last year and completed an internship with a boutique Investment Bank firm. Yet, I have not had any finance interviews
Valerie asks: How do you approach getting a mentor or sponsor? How do you change your organization to be a more engaging workplace?
Valerie’s question came out of a leadership panel I moderated at the Asian MBA Conference. You can read more insights from the panel in my Forbes column: How Leaders Pick Leaders: 3 Executives Reveal How Promotions Are Decided
