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 used your services approx 16motnsh go and have now been in my current role for 1 year. I am 100% positive the investment in your services helped get me an interview and secure a 6 figure position. In a sea of similar resume's and great talent searching for employment you helped me stand out from the crowd. Still we remain in tumultuous time and deep recession. I think it only prudent to that I keep my resume and cover letters up to date with current employment and performance measures. I would like to consider using you to update my documents. Do you offer an update service?

I wanted you to know that I was offered a position yesterday here in the XXXXX area at an excellent medical device/laser therapy equipment company. I have accepted the position... Now that the search is over, I want you to know that I have had more responses to my resume in the last 3 months than at any other time in my career. I have had multiple responses to cold call mailings. (a ten fold increase over previous cold job searches) Also the e-distribution you sent out netted me 1 phone interview per every 8-10 e-mail response. Excellent!! I am a faithful supporter of your work. Thanks again.

I give Michelle my highest recommendations. Yes it may seem like a lot of money to invest but the difference can be made up on your first paycheck in your new career. It is my personal experience that you get "more than you pay for" with the quality Michelle provides...

Marie: A few months ago you rewrote my resume for me. I can't say how grateful and thankful I am that I chose to let Distinctive Documents assist with my new resume. I accepted a position with Xxxxxx and I leave for Xxxxx on 4 Sept. Now I will be able to pay my home off in a couple of months and get one of my rental properties paid off within the year. Thanks again & GOD BLESS!

I want to thank you with all the effort you have done! I have found already some companies which are like to have me and they want to employ me here in my favorite Country. I know, that the key was also the work you did, brushing up my career on paper and make it in a way I would never be able to. Again, thank you so much ! Receive my best Regards and I will stay in touch with you. Maybe some day I will need your help again if I would come to the US.
