Professional Pivot: When and Why to Take the Leap

Event Starts In:


Are you ready to take the jump and switch industry or profession? A route to building confidence, a desire to get more out of your career and a solid support framework are amongst the things needed to achieve professional success and personal fulfilment. Join Morgan Stanley for a panel discussion focussed on career pivots; learn more about how to make a career change, the key considerations, and benefits.

The panel will share first-hand experiences and tips on how you can change your career and/or industry, even if it seems daunting and beyond reach. They will also impart their perspectives on why considering a career in financial services could be a personal and professional win, as well as discussing how to approach mobility opportunities from within the financial services industry.

Our speakers will candidly reveal challenges they overcame, support they received and why it was the right decision for them to make the shift. Pertinent to those working across all industries and organisations, including financial services, and whether you’re considering changing careers entirely, or simply moving roles within your current company, this empowering and engaging discussion will provide you with valuable advice on all aspects of a professional pivot mid-career.

3 Key takeaways:

  • Receive insights and practical tips on how to take the first step when it comes to making a career change
  • Understand the importance of transferable skills and how your skillsets can be applied in new environments
  • Meet inspirational employees, learn more about Morgan Stanley’s culture and the firm’s commitment to innovation and diversity & inclusion.
