If you are switching industries, do not launch into job experience that the hiring manager may not think is relevant. Heifetz suggests adding an accomplishments section right after your opener that makes the bridge between your experience and the job requirements. These are main points you want to get across, the powerful stories you want to tell, she says. It makes the reader sit up straight and say Holy cow, I want to talk to her. Not because of who she is but because of what is she is done. Here is a sample mid-career resume that does this well (source: John Lees, Knockout CV). After the accomplishments section (if you add it), list your employment history and related experience. See below for exactly what to include. Then add any relevant education. Some people want to put their education up top. That might be appropriate in academia but for a business resume, you should highlight your work experience first and save your degrees and certifications for the end. And that ever-popular skills section? Heifetz recommends skipping it all together. If you have not convinced me that you have those skills by the end of the resume, Iam not going to believe it now, she explains. If you have expertise with a specific type of software, for example, include it in the experience section. And if it is a drop-dead requirement for the job, also include it in the summary at the very top.

Several months into her previous job, Claire Smith realized that she needed a change. The job, the industry, and the institution were not the right fit for me. It just was not where I wanted to be in my career, she explains. She started to look at job descriptions, honed in on positions or organizations that were interesting to her, then decided to work with a professional resume writer. I tried to do a little changing and reshaping on my own at first but it did not feel all that different from where I began, she says. Working with someone else helped her see that the resume was not about explaining what she done in her career but why she was the best person for a particular job. Claire started with one resume and then tailored it to each position. You have the same raw materials — the accomplishments, the skills, the results you achieved over time — but you have to pick and choose to shape those things into a different narrative, Claire says. The summary, which on her resume consisted of three bullet points, was the element she tweaked the most. For example, when she applied to be an editor, the first bullet point read: Versatile writer and editor committed to speaking directly to readers needs. But when she applied for a marketing position, she tweaked it to emphasize her ability to recruit customers and be a brand champion: Innovative brand champion and customer recruiter in marketing, product development, and communications. Then, before launching into a chronological list of her jobs, she highlighted, selected accomplishments related to each point in her summary. For example, under writer and editor, she included three achievements, including this one: Based on customer data and email performance metrics, wrote new email series to provide prospective students with more targeted information about Simmons and to convert more of them to applicants. Improved performance over past emails producing average open rates of more than 20%. Claire equates collaborating with a resume professional to working with a personal trainer. She felt challenged to keep rewriting and improving. And the hard work paid off. She recently landed a full-time job, which she starts next month.
