Career Calling

Keep Your Resume Relevant to What the Employer Needs

I’m working with a client who is making a big career change.  After 25 years as a financial analyst, trader, and manager, he has completed a second bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management with a focus on culinary arts.  He wants to work in a position where he will be hands on in cooking or a related field.  Therefore, very little of what he did in his previous career will matter to his new employer.  Instead, we will show that my client has a solid work history and play up some transferable skills related to management and communication.  Otherwise, we are focusing on food and the food industry.  Keep your resume focused on what matters to your next employer, not the last one.
