Show Notes

One of the questions job seekers often ask is how to navigate a career change. Career transitions can be tricky without clarity and guidance from others who have done them. In this episode, I talk to Producer turned Enterprise Sales Lead Margee Hocking, who mastered her career transition. I also had an opportunity to ask her how she:  

  • Built connected relationships as a remote worker
  • Transferred her skills from production to enterprise sales
  • Found a role model-- and the attributes she admired 
  • Managed different projects and personalities with grace and ease
