- Think about common points with your future job
- Same industry as you worked in? You understand the business background.
- Same role or working with the same stakeholders? (marketing, etc)
- Understanding of connection between IT and the business goals and being able to explain it in interviews, and the results that it contributes to. This can be applied to the next job, whatever the underlying platform or technology is.
