I have a friend who is a government-employed nurse and is looking to advance her career in another federal government field. Even though she is at the highest GS level, she’s having trouble finding work and it’s likely because she’s being typecast as a nurse.
How can she convey the skills she’s gained from nursing (leadership, people-skills, ability to work under pressure) in a way that makes her marketable for other government positions?
Have any of you switched career paths within the federal government? How did you do it and do you have any tips?
