Career Change Resume Sample

Sample of a career change resume written to help an administrative services manager transition to a new industry

Changing careers, whether that change involves moving to a new profession or to a new industry, can be a challenge. A well-written career change resume that emphasizes your transferable skills and strengths while downplaying industry-specific language is essential.

This example career change resume illustrates how that can be accomplished during an industry change, by strategically wording the resume in a way that downplays industry while showcasing the qualifications that would be transferable to other industries. For example, managing P&L, leading change initiatives, hiring and training staff, handling customer relations, and other similar skills that are essential for administrative management roles.

Note that we didn’t hide any industry information. Instead, in this resume we shifted attention to qualifications and accomplishments that would apply to other industries and downplayed specific industry expertise. This particular client thought that he may be interested in working in a healthcare-related industry, so we left in some of the relevant keywords for that industry. However, he did not want to work int he veterinary industry again, so we deemphasized those keywords.

A career change resume is among the most challenging to write of all resumes. Each one must be very unique and specific to the individual circumstances. This resume is protected by copyright and can not be legally copied. But to do so would be counterproductive, anyhow.

It will be our honor to help you with that! Receiving a quote for our services is easy. Just complete this brief form.

Michelle, A quick note from a VERY happy client...Just had an opportunity to go through the first draft of Sharon's work. I am so impressed. She has done a wonderful job. And mine is not one that is copy and paste from others like me. My current job, in particular, is pretty esoteric. And, Sharon NAILED it! Look forward to wrapping this up. In the meantime, thank you for pairing me with such a great professional! Happy to help on referrals. Great product, great value and great experience so far.

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.

O.G., Florida

The resume is even better than I expected and I am certainly pleased with the outcome, especially since I do not believe that I would have been able produce this quality the first time out.This service has clearly pointed out the need for a professional resume writer to clearly articulate areas where I would have undersold myself.
