180 degree career shift

Post Fri May 30, 2008 8:51 am
Hi,

I just want to get your view on the issue of career shift. I have an engineering education form the best school in India. For 9 months after my post-grad, I worked in an automobile company. However, since I always wanted a more quantitative role, I decided to shift to a reputed marketing analytics and consulting firm. In the current company, where I have worked for close to 1.5 years now, I design statistical models and have so far consulted various reputed companies.

My question is, will such a dramatic shift in career go down badly with the ad com? Or, what is the best way to present or defend this shift?

Thanks in anticipation
