Want to know what it takes to make a successful career transition? My guest May Samali and I will show you how to do it right. We cover everything from changing professions, going back to study, and becoming an entrepreneur.
Career changes can be challenging, but there are many things you can do to ensure that your new path will be successful. For this episode of The Job Hunting Podcast, I interviewed May Samali, a leadership coach who has had many career changes and is keen to share how she's managed to land on her feet. Together, May and I will advise you on how to prepare yourself for your career transition and choose the best career path for you.
