How do I Write a Resume if I am Switching Careers?
If you have made the decision to pursue another type of career after working in another industry for several years, it can be hard to know how to communicate the value of your skills and experiences in a way that will resonate with an employer in a different industry.
Many of our clients came to us asking for resume writing services when we started the business in 2016; we responded by conducting research and training our team with the tools they need to help others.
We can help you convey your transferable skills and accomplishments to make it clear to an employer why you would be an excellent candidate, and how your experiences and skills will benefit their organization.
Regardless of your location or industry, if you are looking for a job, you are probably in a competitive job market. There may be hundreds of applicants applying for the same job as you. It can be hard to stand out when there is so much competition.
We know that the hardest part of writing a resume can be deciding where to start. It’s hard to write about yourself, and it’s even tougher to begin to walk through your career when you haven’t had to write a resume for a long time. Some of the most common questions we hear when clients come to us for a discovery call or consultation are:
How long should the resume be?
What font should I use?
Which resume format (chronological, functional/skill-based or a combination) is appropriate?
Which document format is acceptable?
The answers to these questions depend on your individual situation, and we will apply what we have learned from helping over 120 applicants since July 2016 in many different fields secure new job opportunities.
Our standard resume package includes a 60-90 minute consultation, “master” document in Microsoft Word format and two revisions for specific job opportunities.
We will also provide coaching during the consultation about how to handle situations in an interview (e.g. addressing a large employment gap on your resume).
