There are plenty of roles where being a generalist is an asset. Based on the new job you are targeting, draw upon your most applicable experience first when applying or interviewing. But you can also use examples from your other experience to demonstrate you have well-rounded knowledge and understanding of a business that you can draw upon. Very few roles in a business operate in a vacuum; the more understanding you bring to the table about other parts of the business, the more valuable you can be.
There are a few roles in particular where your combination of skills would be useful. Consider project management, product marketing, sales or recruitment. Project managers oversee a process touching many parts of a business and have to understand all of them. Product marketing needs an understanding of the technology, communication skills, leadership and program research. Sales will draw upon all your experience. And recruitment requires professionals who are able to talk about different areas and job roles. If you can speak from personal experience in recruitment, it is even more powerful. These are just a few ideas; good luck!
