Context: After graduating college, I was excited to accept a role at a fast-growing unicorn company. The title I accepted was "Growth Operations Associate."
Upon starting, I quickly began to realize the direction of my team began focusing specifically on organizational culture and employee/people strategy. While this provided lots of learnings and invaluable experiences, when I accepted the role I was excited to use this position as a kick-starter for a marketing position.
Now that I'm no longer in that position or company, I'm looking to pursue a true Marketing position. That said, I'm now finding myself already pigeon-hold into HR/employee experience type roles.
I've catered my resume and profile to display overlapping responsibilities between my position and a marketing one, but am finding that when speaking with prospective employers, they're opting for more "experienced" people with "skills that more closely align to the position."
Can anyone offer any advice or similar experiences that I can use to help navigate this career pivot? Appreciate it!
