I am transitioning from the non-profit sector with recruiting, training and supervising stipend volunteer workers having been a large part of the job. I really enjoyed the whole training process and have decided to pursue it as my career path but in the corporate arena.
I have not received any bites yet and know that it is because I do not have "specialities" that I am equipped to instruct staff in besides Medicare and Senior adult issues.
My new approach is to still apply for trainer positions but with a proposal to work as a volunteer. I need the experience and hopefully an out of the box company will applaud my ingenuity and see the value in it for them as well. It's not like I don't have training experience but I do need polish to acclimate to the training needs of a corporation.
Hopefully this will be a helpful idea to others who are training novices.
