In today’s competitive employment market, more and more job seekers want to transition from one position or field to another. Are you thinking about changing careers or transitioning into a new field, industry or new occupation? Are you struggling to write your resume? We can help you.
There are many reasons why job seekers would choose to transition into a new career here are just a few:

Some job seekers want to stay in the same field but move into a different industry. A sales executive working in the high tech industry, who wants to transition into healthcare appliance and equipment sales, is one example of a change in industry. Others have devoted 20 plus years to a career and are now looking to contribute in an entirely different field, say the retiring Marine Master Sergeant working in HR administration who is looking for a new career in teaching.

Career Transition Resumes Can be Challenging to Write
Most of these career changers agree that writing a career change resume on their own is extremely difficult. There is no doubt about it career change or career transition resumes are challenging to write. Each employment opportunity requires specific skill sets, and the transitioning job seeker uniquely brings their expertise and experiences to the table.

The Professional Resume Writer, Career Change Advantage
As a professional resume writer, I know the tricky part of writing a career transition resume is identifying what to keep, what to let fall away and how to present the client in the most accomplished and capable way for their new career. I am committed to staying on top of changing trends in the resume writing industry, and that’s why I completed an update training course, Writing Expert Resumes for Career Changers. This training was presented by Louise Kursmark and Wendy Enelow, of The Resume Writing Academy and Career Thought Leaders. I learned the newest tools and strategies to write professional, targeted and compelling career transition resumes for my clients.
My training and experience give me the ability to separate your accomplishments and job duties from the environment in which they were acquired. I can then translate them in a targeted way to the new career position. I downplay unrelated information and experience and focus on those items that employers want to see in prospective candidates. I write career change resumes that represent you, your skills, experiences, accomplishments, and education so that hiring managers can clearly see you in the new career and filling their job opening.
