Writing for Career Change Success

Presented by Marie Zimenoff and Jan Melnik

 When professionals of any age, job level, industry, and job function make a career change, they face the challenge of helping future employers connect the dots. How do you build a resume and profile that open doors in a new industry or career path based on your candidate’s existing experience?

In this Resume and Profile Master-E-Session, Jan and Marie will take you beyond the fluff of “transferrable skills” to communicate your candidate’s value and help them land interviews in their new area of focus.

Through two hours of training and 60+ pages of sample resumes, letters, LinkedIn profiles, questions, and more, you will learn strategies for writing to address common career change challenges for today’s mobile workforce, including:

  • Millennial candidates who change careers frequently and need help putting all the pieces together.
  • Baby Boomer candidates with want to down-size their career, find part-time work, or teach.
  • Candidates who have worked for institutions (government, military, or academia) and are now looking to transition into corporate positions.
  • Candidates who have worked for corporations and are looking to move into government or nonprofit work.
  • Candidates who are looking to transition their existing skill set into a new industry.
  • Candidates who are making a more significant shift and have gone back to school to aid in their career transition.
  • And more!

This Master-E-Session will provide tools you can use to improve outcomes – including questions to gather great content, inspiration to write strong accomplishments, examples to freshen up your formats, and much more!

The handout includes 20+ sample resumes, LinkedIn profiles, and cover letters plus resources, questionnaires, and tools to build your confidence in taking on projects for this growing candidate pool.

This program is offered via audio/video recording, and each attendee will receive the handouts and the recording to listen and watch – over and over – whenever you wish.

I work with clients coast-to-coast throughout all facets of career management: from development of resumes and other branded career documents to creation of job-search strategies. Interview, job search, and negotiation coaching comprises a significant part of the work I do. While many of these clients are senior-level executives, I also work with those aspiring to reach the top organizational tiers. Likewise, through my C-level work, I have the opportunity to frequently coach trailing spouses as well as the children of these high-achieving clients as they prepare for college and graduate school admission and ultimately their own careers following completion of undergraduate and graduate studies. Prior to starting my private practice, I worked in HR/staffing, public relations, and field service management for such companies as Digital Equipment Corporation, John Hancock Mutual Life Insurance Company, and Parker-Hannifin Corporation.
