Exit Stage Left – Considering careers outside the arts
Have you been reflecting on your career and role in the performing arts industry, and thinking you might like to use your skills, strengths and talents in another way?
If so, often one of the biggest challenges when considering a career outside the arts is knowing how to articulate your skills into the language of a different sector. You know you have skills, but if you have trouble positioning those as transferable and relevant, then the application process is tough going.
Whether you’re considering a different career within the arts or a transition outside the arts, this session will give practical tips and techniques for presenting your arts expertise in a way that can enable a career transition. And, we’ll address that pesky problem of what to write when you don’t quite have all those Key Selection Criteria!
