The Training Problem

Looking for a job in training is tricky. I met a friend at lunch today whose education and experience is not much different than my own.

We commiserated over the fact that job boards/sites don’t help us because we are not in a particular industry. For me, unless the subject is something like a hard science or some kinds of engineering, I can learn the material and then train the staff or customers. This is especially true of software. I don’t have to fully understand the quirks and nuances of the banking industry to train tellers on the software they will be using. In fact, my fresh perspective will ensure that more of the necessary questions are addressed in the training.

So, where do industry-less people like me find our niche?
