Question: Where can I find temporary management staffing opportunities while I get my career as an independent marketing professional off the ground?

Matt: Contacting one of the many staffing firms in the Twin Cities is probably the best place to go. Companies may be hesitant to hire someone for a short-term management position because by the time you learn the ropes, you may move on. So consider contract work if possible. Additionally, be open to a range of jobs — even if they aren’t necessarily a perfect match for you. During your initial meeting with a staffing professional, be sure to communicate your goals and be clear what your project time frame is. Let the person know you are looking for temporary work while starting another career. Then, as you start your new career as a marketing professional, keep one eye on making a living through management jobs you are familiar with, but keep the other eye looking for different opportunities that may lead to increased business for your marketing career.

Question: I want to start my career over in a new field. Where should I start?
