MBA & Can't Get A Job
I am a 37-year-old male with an MBA and have been unsuccessful at transitioning my career focus.
I am what many call a "generalist", with an assorted background of customer service, accounting, finance, PR, auditing, and medical office management.
I would like to put my MBA "to use" and am interested in consulting or marketing, however I have found it nearly impossible to obtain an entry-level management position. I search listings daily, volunteer with several business organizations, and regularly network at events.
I believe my age may be a disadvantage, so how can I get my foot in the door in a new function? I do not want to go back to accounting or finance.
I would like to know how I can just get a "bite on my fishing line" where a respectable employer will let me into a new function and provide training so that I can start utilizing my real potential.
