When my seminary recruited me, one of their selling points was: If you study Jewish Education now, you can always switch to secular education later in life….
BUT now that I’m actually trying to break into the world as a secular educator or a secular non profit professional, everyone only sees the Jewish experience and the Jewish degrees.
So, if anyone out there has guidance into how I can present my Jewish education experience and my Jewish communal service experience as valuable, translatable, transferable experience into the secular world of higher education and non profit management, please share.
Am I a career switcher? Is the switch from working in religious institutions to the secular world a career switch?
