moving job out of education advice
Hello, just looking for some advice really
I'm looking to move on out of education and I have been looking for jobs for the last couple of months.
It's been remarked by a few agencies that my lack of experience in a commercial/enterprise environment will have stopped a lot of agencies/employers from even considering my CV.
To me, I can see the differences between a education environment and a commercial/enterprise environment and feel I can explain the similarities and how a situation in a commercial environment can be adapted education environment etc
I was just wondering if anyone else has had experience of this?
My IT support experience is all education relater with 1 year at University and 3.5 years in my current role.

I found it took a long time and a fair few CV re-writes to get across the similarities and for someone to give me the opportunity.
I've recently got a new job in the private sector and am looking forward to starting.
Just make sure you tailor your CV for that application and ensure you put in examples of what you have done in relation to the job description. At least then you will have a chance of an interview, from there you can shine.
All the best mate
