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.

I just want to take the time and thank you for your assistance. The quality of and sharpness of my resume has never been so good. Plus, the advice to improve my cover letter also helped tremendously. I saw an immediate impact with your resume, which led me to receive several job offers. I will recommend your services to anyone who needs help in putting a resume together, or those that think they have it together. It was an investment well worth it.

Sharon was able to take a complex situation and mold it into a work of art. I cannot say enough good things about the way she did her job and the way she showed her concern about helping me get my resume and career changing transition points across. I felt very comfortable in relying on her expertise. She did an excellent job!

I am sure that my resume was not easy to put together. I provided a lot of information, some of which may not have been easy to relate to. Sharon was able to take that information and create a resume to fit the needs of myself and the companies I would apply to. The end result was a high quality, highly profession document.

When searching for a resume writing service, I was a bit apprehensive at first. Ordering and paying for a service without ever meeting the service provider face to face is something that I am very much not used to doing. I can now say that I am glad that I took the risk. From the beginning, everyone I spoke with was very helpful and professional. The follow-up contact was very good and I appreciated that. I also appreciated the worksheet, which did what it was intended to do; by the writer getting to know my background, and me coming to realize the depth of my background and accomplishments. The end result of my experience with your company was the attainment of a very professional resume, an increase in job search motivation, and the confidence in knowing that I am putting forth the best possible effort in making a good first impression and landing the right job.

I would absolutely recommend your services to friends, relatives and co-workers.
