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.

Lisa, I LOVE IT!!!! Anyone who is considering a career move should be directing their resume needs to Distinctive. This is absolutely perfect! This kind of resume is exactly what I need, but lack the experience, knowledge and time to create. I am very good at what I do, but my knowledge and my abilities have their limitiations. Acceptance of my limitations is precisely what makes me very good. However, finding the people with the knowledge and abilities that I lack, is what makes me great. Thank you for building my resume with greatness!

L.S., Michigan

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.

Lisa produced a great product that is better than what I expected. I found that going through the worksheet was helpful in bringing new things to mind - things that weren't originally on the resume I produced - that translated to my final resume. I found your method very effective. By setting parameters for review & deadlines eliminated the normal mundane 'back-and-forth' that is all too often present in projects nowadays. I did recommend DCS to two of my colleagues & also to my sister.
