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. To make a successful career change, you should take steps to have every advantage on your side, and that includes having your resume professionally written. It will be our honor to help you with that! Receiving a quote for our services is easy. Just complete this brief form.

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.

As my resume is reaching its final completion stage, I would like to thank you for your help. Nancy did a great job with my resume, and helped me figure out what exactly I wanted (which was a task on its own). Entering the professional world for the first time is daunting and scary and I feel more confident with the resources your company has provided.
