I don’t know if this is the correct forum, but I need some advice. I worked at a company for 15 years. I gained lots of good experience during that time. Unfortunately, the company changed my job and told me that I needed to go on the road and do sales for the company. I had 2 preschool kids and I could not do that.
So I left that company and started all over… and I mean literally started over. I took a job in assembly and now have worked my way into a nice office position and I finished my bachelor degree. I am a single parent trying to better myself because while my job is nice I need more money to run my household. I have been with my new employer for 8-1/2 years.
My problem is that now people tell me that they are looking for candidates with “recent” experience. I have the experience and they can see that - but my experience was from my previous employer.
Any suggestions on how I can counter that we need “recent experience” thought?
Please let me know
