Resume For A Career Change Sample

Example of a resume for a career change written for a job hunter seeking a new profession.

This sample resume for a career change illustrates a critical point–that your resume isn’t necessarily about your past; it is about your future.

Writing a resume for a career change is tricky and often requires some real creativity in both the content and resume design. It is important to look back at all your past experiences and accomplishments, identifying any and all of the relevant and transferable experience and accomplishments. Have you taken any courses related to your career change target? Don’t just list the training; list some details about education-related projects. Have you completed any internships? How about volunteer work that shows you have the potential to excel in your new career?

It is equally important in your resume for a career change that you de-emphasize less relevant experience, such as this job seekers position as a medical technologist.

Writing a resume for a career change is one of the most challenging types of resumes for most people to write. If you are considering a career change, you should consider the professional resume writing services offered by Distinctive Documents.

Thank you for checking in to see how things are going. Sharon sent me the initial draft and I must say I'm quite happy with the result. I'm going through it to see if I want any changes done, but I doubt I will want anything major changed. I am so glad my friend recommended distinctive web for me! And I am now recommending it to my uncle who also wants to work on his CV. I already sent my cv sample (the before and after) and he was impressed :)

Laura was a pleasure to work with. She address all my needs and was blown away how my new resume just "POPS" and gets your attention. I will recommend to my family, friends, and colleagues about how you can launch and re-launch careers. Thanks.

I wanted to give you a heads up. I've passed your name onto a few friends and and her husband may contact you shortly for resume services. also has two girlfriends which may contact you also, but she can fill you in on that when she contacts you. I've also forwarded your information to another of my colleagues here at . Additionally, I've told that I intend to leave and have signed a temporary contract with them through the end of the year. As part of my agreement to "hang around" to allow them to transition stuff over and find a replacement, they've provided executive outplacement services. I'm working with and , my "career coach" may contact you also. He stated that he had never seen such a well phrased resume, and I told him how happy I had been with your services and turnaround. does not have anyone as experienced as you in this area. Regarding my job search. I've received two offers and turned both down. A few other interviews, but nothing I wanted to pursue. I took the summer off the job search and intend to re-enter the market at the end of this week or next with hopes of finding a job no earlier than January or preferably June/July. I have some plans to travel, relax, enjoy life, etc. while I still have no solid ties or obligations. I'll let you know how things go.

I felt Nancy did a wonderful job and I enjoyed working with her. The quality of the resume was far beyond anything that I could have ever created myself. This was my work experience, but Nancy gave my resume a life of its own. I would highly recommend your services. I really never thought that I would need a resume writing service, but its amazing what a professional writer can accomplish.

Michelle Dumas' development of my resume resulted in an outstanding document. My first submittal to various contacts and executive recruiters resulted in six solid job opportunities within two weeks...... Nothing short of phenomenal. I believe the professional structure of my resume opened these doors. I highly endorse Distinctive Documents.
