Overview

The book shows actual resumes and cover letters that helped real people change fields. At a time when research shows that most working people have three distinctly different careers, here is a book which reveals the successful techniques involved in changing fields. Real-Resumes for Career Changers is based on the philosophy that an effective career-change resume must "build bridges" to new opportunities. The Table of Contents is designed to show individuals in varying degrees of career change and seeking different goals: finding a new career after motherhood, finding a new product to sell or represent, finding a completely different type of work to do, seeking a change but staying in the same industry, changing fields with absolutely no idea what's next, changing fields with a pretty good idea about what's ahead, and changing from self-employment to something totally different. Real-Resumes Series editor Anne McKinney believes strongly that career-change resumes are the most unusual and most creative because they are selling "potential" rather than experience.
