 asked:

Hii Ms Deena, I have 8 years of experience in International sales and marketing in electrical projects and different electrical products. Now its seems to be that electrical sector is not a good line at the salaries are low from other sectors. So I want to be in sales and marketing but I wanted to switch my sector to FMGC or Advisory firms or Banking Insurance. But it seems to be very difficult as every company wants similar experience role. Please help how can i switch my sector now at this stage.
