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.

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 have already said thank you and in fact, I do not have the proper words in my vocabulary to express what I feel for your product. My resume is something out of this world! I also mentioned to XXXX that my daughter and I (here in RSA) have never yet seen such quality, the quality that is included in your end product. Yes indeed, I am more than grateful for what you did for me. I have already shown it to a number of people in this country; people who are planning moves to the USA. Your website, your name, your numbers are all readily being tossed around here, and I hope these people will soon be contacting you and your company. Thank you once again for a super superior resume!

Michelle - Thanks again for the services provided, although I will not have to use my resume at this time it is very empowering and encouraging to know that it is ready to go. The quality has exceeded my expectations and I will share that with folks I mentor or colleagues looking for similar services.

Michelle Dumas' development of my resume resulted in an outstanding document. My first submittal to various contacts and executive recruiters resulted in six solid job opportunities within two weeks...... Nothing short of phenomenal. I believe the professional structure of my resume opened these doors. I highly endorse Distinctive Documents.
