Whenever the conversation of using content marketing takes place, it generally occurs within the context of online marketing. It is rarely used within the career change space.

One of the reasons for this is the understanding and usage of the definition of content marketing.

boost=career-change-chances-with-content-marketing-kingsley-grantContent marketing is generally associated with the digital world.

However, when content marketing is looked at as any content posted in a public setting whether as an image, audio, video and/or text files, it changes the conversation.

One has to now care about what they post because it could be used against or for them.

With this in mind, it behooves you to be strategic about your posting especially if you are seeking to create the desired impression.

In this episode, you will discover how to use content as a marketing technique to improve your chances of securing the career change of your choice.

Here are the 5 Ways of using content marketing to improve your chances of a successful career change.

2. Share your content often i.e. more than once

3. Have shareable Social Media buttons on your website if you have one

4. Cite influencers contributions within the body of your posts

QUESTION & ANSWER SECTION

Any advice on making a career change?

I'm currently working 15 hrs a day and not seeing my family at all for not good money. I have 8 years of management experience.

I'm the GM at a restaurant in LA. I'm looking to make a change from the restaurant/hospitality field to something in technology, finance, or business consulting.

  • I'm 31.
  • BS in business.
  • LSS green belt training.
  • Husband & father.
  • Logical, data driven, 13yrs professional exp.,
  • Technologically inclined.

MY ANSWER

One thing that comes to your question is that you are a person who possibly doesn’t make changes easily.

You have been working in a field that is incongruent with your training and learning, yet you have stayed where you are for so long.

Is it that you do not like change? Is it that you are fearful?

I would strongly suggest that you:

  1. Get a coach or a mentor to help you through this transition
  2. Have an idea of what it is you want to do and possibly where you could do that
  3. Give yourself a timeline as to when you want to make the change
  4. Identify the skills you have that are transferable to the technical world
  5. Clearly, communicate your desire to your spouse and get her support.
  6. See if you could set aside 2 hours per week to work on this transition, which could include doing something on the side.
