Hi, all! I've been an executive level legal admin for 10 years but am wanting to make a change. I've looked for administrative supervisor roles, office/practice manager positions, and coordinator positions because they seem to be a logical next step. I have 2 years supervisory experience so these positions will increase my management experience while playing to my strengths. I've been told my resume is strong and my cover letter focuses on examples of how my current job skills easily transition to the desired role . I have 4 quotes from managers and co-workers and gave a STAR example of how I saw a problem, found the solution and taught myself the necessary program, impressed our senior analyst with the end result, and increased department efficiently. The cover letter ends with the explanation that I am no longer challenged in my current position and am looking for more responsibility.
All that to say I feel like people see "executive admin" as my current title and write me off. How do I get past that? Is there another issue I'm not seeing? Any insight is appreciated.
