Considering changing industries?

Here’s what you need to know about updating your resume (and LinkedIn profile):

  • Do your research. What skills or experiences are favored in the industries you’re interested in?
  • Include any experiences/accomplishments that match what they’re looking for in your resume
  • Remove industry jargon/acronyms from your resume
  • Ask a friend with minimal knowledge of your current industry to read your resume & explain each line
  • Don’t just rely only on your resume. Engage your network & start connecting with professionals in the industries that interest you

The bottom line: Changing industries can be an exciting opportunity to boost your career. Always focus on being strategic and you’ll find the process will be much smoother.
