    Curriculum Vitae

    We’re bred to value qualifications and ensure we have the right competencies. Whilst being qualified has value, it is only a small piece of the puzzle in making a transition.

    You may also be surprised that having a good CV is the least important factor. Why? Because you are placing yourself in the same market as everyone else with a crafted CV.

    From experience, we at BCT Solutions believe that a good network is the most important factor in doing the work you love with people you like. So as your next step, consider investing in relationships before the next qualification.

    Transition FAQs

    A career change is huge. There is no template. But you can avoid the mistakes that affect plenty of veterans. The starting point is to do your research.

    These FAQs are asked by everyone undertaking the journey. The advice we’ve provided has been compiled from the experience of all us that did it the hard way.

    Use the advice and our cheat sheet to help achieve the transition you want.

    What qualifications should I get?

    Qualifications are most useful in specialised fields or in a role that requires deep domain experience. Our advice is to invest in relationships first, then work out what qualifications will enhance the specific area you are targeting.

    What jobs can I transition to?

    One of the biggest challenges in making a transition, is knowing what type of role is the best for you. Veterans normally struggle to translate broad leadership and management skill sets into a specific type of job. The best job for you is a combination of relationships, tasks, company and industry. Therefore our advice is to leverage relationships to help define your niche in any company or industry.

    What company is right for me?

    The best-fit company is one that matches your career goals, expected remuneration and desirable work conditions. A clear indicator of potential fit, is if they are honest about what they want from you and demonstrate clear commitment to their promises.
