From Software to Solar

DFN: Lot of people worry about the transferability of skills, not sure what the similarities are between Software and Solar, except they both begin with S. Here’s a case in which the company thought there was suck a thing a transferable skills. In my experience, this receptiveness is symptomatic of a company / culture that is open minded. Who wouldn’t want to work in a company that was open-minded? So, if you’re rejected for an opportunity because you lack industry experience, count your blessings, you been turned down by a company which is most likely ‘close-minded’, would you really want to work in such an environment? So, its kind of like natural selection, they reject you, you wouldn’t to work there, so it works nicely.
