switching industry focus?

 
#1 switching industry focus?

Hi - I have a number of years consulting experience in the financial services sector. Have recently been considering switching to a different industry focus (for numerous reasons). Has anybody made this sort of career move and have any advice? I am at managing consultant level and am concerned I would have to take a step back to make this change.

Thanks

Financial knowledge is a specialism that can be applied across many vertical markets. Hence, I do not forsee significant difficulty in transfering sectors.

Yours,

Paris.

Tony Restell (Top-Consultant.com) to Anon (#1)

Anon - assuming you're working in a consulting firm that works across a number of practice areas, my strong recommendation would be to position yourself to work on projects outside FS with your existing employer. In the current climate this shouldn't be too difficult - firms will appreciate consultants who are willing and eager to be placed on whatever assignments the company wins rather than holding out for projects just in the FS space.

Once you've got some other project experience on your CV that allows you to position yourself either as a generalist or as someone with expertise in a couple of different verticals then you'll be in a much better position to move without triggering a backwards step in your career.

If your current employer only works in the FS sector then this is going to be trickier...
