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.
