Hi there! I would recommend first figuring out what you love and what you dislike in a job and going from there. Through you 10 years in education you've developed a lot of soft, transferable skills that I'm sure would help you in a number of different roles but it really depends on what you enjoy doing. Once you have an idea of what that is, start networking! Through LinkedIn and through in-person networking events. Start building connections with other professionals that are in the field/role that you want to go into. And finally, craft a strong resume, I would say a functional resume would work better in your case since you are changing careers and functional resumes focus more on skills and abilities rather than chronological work history. Hope this helps!
