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.

Hi Michelle. Since our mailing,I have had six phone interviews with recruiters leading to being a candidate for Chairman of a {Name of State} based company, CEO for a {Name of State} Company and being introduced to two private equity firms by another recruiter for Board Directorships. Two others want to introduce me to private equity firms they partner with for proprietary deals. Finally, {Name of Recruiter} of {Name of Firm} out of Silicon Valley said the resume was among the best five he has ever seen from both a format and content standpoint (maybe all 5 are your clients !)...On the VC side, I received a couple Email responses. I thought you might want to know all of this. Thanks for the great work.

Your team was responsive to me at the start of the process and even more responsive when I picked this back up 6 months later. The quality of my interactions with your team has been second to none and I will happily recommend you and your team to my colleagues. I am blown away by the quality of these documents. These are exactly what I need to move to the next stage in my career and I know they will help me get where I want to be. I will happily recommend your company to friends and colleagues. I couldn't be happier and I thank you again for your help.

Michelle was very friendly and extremely professional. After she completed my resume I sent out only two resumes and actually received both interviews! I accepted one of these positions at an annual salary $12,000 higher than I was receiving previously...

Michelle, It has been a pleasure to work with you on this project. I will be sure to recommend your services to my associates. I sought out someone like you to be able to put down on paper my experiences and you certainly delivered. It is funny how I could not have put my own life on paper better than someone who has not even met me face to face. Thanks a million.
