Writing a Resume For A Successful Career Change

Giving up your old job to follow your passion also means that you are changing your career path and your job. In the midst of all the excitement, you must work your way to let everybody know about these changes and you can do this by updating or writing a new resume. 

For career shifter, a critical point in writing your new resume is how you can update your “work experience” because you won’t really have the exact background on the job that you are moving on to. This is especially true if you are going for financial consulting services. A great example of a persuasive narrative in this field is the resume of Scott Gelbard.

This example of a resume shows the individual’s current skills that will perfectly match up with the industry that he is serving. It is advisable to start afresh when you are creating a new resume. Keep in mind that the formatting you will use and the words that you will compose should work at convincing a potential employer to take the risk and hire you because you are worth it. 

And even if you seem to have no “experience” in your new field, you have been thinking about for quite some time now and you have made your research because you are very interested in it. Write a resume that will reflect your familiarity with this new industry and talk about your transferable skills that will be highly useful for your new employer.
