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 took a look at your draft and I love it! I knew that if I had somebody write it for me it would be much better than what I could do... Thanks for your help, I look forward to hearing from you and FYI I'm telling my friends about you so look for more business from Texas.

Michelle I was so right in choosing you as the author of my resume. I am incredibly pleased, no... more than that, blown away with your artistry and skill. It was always my objective to look this good on paper... why, I'd even hire me based on this presentation.

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.
