I was hired right out of college working a commercial lending operations position in theat a fairly large bank (EUR185B AUM). As most operations roles go, this one became very repetitive and also has minimal room for growth. I have been working the same role for the past two years and have been trying to jump to a role working in capital markets, investments, equity , or something in a revenue generating capacity for the past six months.
My problem and question is this - Most employers hiring for a role outside of ops will discard a resume belonging to an operations professional, knowing it is a menial and simple job and one that is constantly being outsourced. Is there anything I can say in an interview that will demonstrate to a potential future employer that I am worth taking a risk on? Or is there a route you would recommend for somebody like me trying to get out of the back office?
Any and all responses are greatly appreciated. Thank you
