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.

Thank you so much for all the work you have done! Frankly, I dreaded the prospect of writing my resume initially. I hit upon the idea of finding someone else to do it and that process was no picnic either, till I found you! You have made this whole process so easy and pleasant. When I got the first draft of my resume I thought, "She must have sent me the wrong resume...who is this person?!". When I found my name and realized that the jobs and experiences were indeed mine, WOW was I amazed! That was the best money I ever spent! Here we are a year later with an update, and yet another excellent job. As much as I dislike changing jobs at least I know that the resume writing will no longer be an issue, I have you! Thanks again.

I got this comment from an executive search firm that we are discussing an opportunity...“By the way, you have one of the sharpest resumes I’ve seen! The design is very professional and readable.

The job search went well, and I have accepted a position with XXXX as an Executive Consultant. There is no doubt in my mind that the quality of my resume opened some doors. In addition to XXXX, I was a finalist for a CTO position at XXXXX, and I declined another offer from XXXX International. Only two things matter when trying to get your foot in the door: networking and the quality of your resume...Feel free to use me as a reference at any time. Thank you.

I am very satisfied w/ the work Marie did; I think it was helpful the way you've designed the process -- setting expectations around deliverable dates, etc... This kept things realistic in my own mind. Resume looks great, happy with the structure and I think Marie emphasized all of the right areas as we had discussed. Just to say that in addition to Marie's frequent follow-up, I think the emails from Michelle -- even if some were system generated -- gave the process a very personal feeling. I've held off when approached by other individuals or companies when they've pitched a resume re-write, b/c the whole process felt like I was buying a used car -- your team obviously accentuates the finer points of the soft sell, which explains why Execunet works with you. Thanks for the great work.
