I will try to cut this short as possible:
Based in the UK, if this is of any relevance. I am looking for a career change: I have a masters in Urban Planning and a humanities related degree. I then worked in marketing, account management, and then set up my own business. In essence, I didnt follow a pre-determined career route, and work experience has been completely unrelated to my education (being self critical, but I see this as making my CV as unfocused and messy).
Im now ready to take control of this (late 20s) and have researched into construction planning. I wont try to sales-pitch to you here, but I believe that it suits my core personality set (marketing & account management didnt!), and I think I would enjoy & do well in this field.
I obviously have no relevant qualifications for this, so can you please advise the best route to even get a foot in the door to relevant companies? And what type of companies should I be targetting?
I am literally willing to work from the bottom up (I have no real financial committments etc. so Im in a position to do this), and realise this will take years to where I want to get to - but I need to know where to start.
I appreciate all your input...
