QOTD: Harder to Shift

“In a good economy, you can make wild transitions, you can make huge functional and industry shifts at the same time, and the market for talent is so tight that you could get multiple offers even if the jobs are completely misaligned with your previous experience. In this economy, it’s still very possible to make a functional shift. It’s still very possible to make an industry shift. But it’s much, much more difficult to make both at the same time.
–Pulin Sanghvi, assistant dean and director of the Stanford Graduate School of Business Career Management Center, quoted in San Francisco Business Times
