Career history so far: decade as a TD/ME, plus the background that gets you there, plus some design work, both scenic and lighting. So, due to a number of circumstances involving relocation, a lack of available employment opportunities in the new location, I am looking to move to a different industry. To anyone who has successfully made the transition out of the arts, how did you go about it? What were the biggest challenges you faced? How do you redress a resume to highlight skills you have acquired and their applicability to other jobs? I would very much like to continue working with my hands, and I think my skill set would dovetail nicely into furniture making, cabinet work, home renovation/restoration. Thank you for reading, and for any thoughts you can share. Cheers! Edit to include: I am bound for the Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts.
