Professionals applying for more senior roles can come up short at times showing past managerial experience when…well…there isn’t any. While it seems like starting from scratch, look back at both your professional and educational background and find projects, teams, or research you led. Start from the beginning and work forward. Here’s how…
There could be times you led or supervised and didn’t even realize it was “managing” – even coaching or mentoring a colleague or subordinate is valuable to add. Have a team of interns you assigned duties and projects to? Add ‘em.
Often, a specific area of work you handled that no one else was directly responsible for can demonstrate your leadership qualities. Managerial experience doesn’t have to be about leading large teams; managing is managing, regardless how many employees were involved.
If you’ve graduated in the past couple of years, any sort of club, committee, team, or group you led can translate to easy managerial points. No matter what it was, just having the titles — Lead or Director or Chairperson — provides value.
