PINING FOR THAT CRYSTAL BALL?
Ever wish you had been offered a sneak peek into your future during High School? What if you had “just known” that a particular job was the perfect fit…or that the course you were studying would not offer viable career options in the future locations you would call home?
Unfortunately it doesn’t happen that way for most of us. Often it is the journey we take that forces our hand, or challenges us to reevaluate the type of work practices, role, and industry we want.
Are you ready to steer your career in a different direction? Congratulations on your “a-ha” moment and let’s get you on the right track.
THE NUMBER ONE THING EVERY CAREER CHANGER SHOULD KNOW
It is not up to your employer to scrutinize your career history and pull out the transferable threads. It’s up to you to make yourself a ‘smack-on- the-head” obvious candidate for your new role or industry.
You must tailor your professional brand to appeal to your new target audience.
Your competition may look great on paper because they have been in that industry or worked in similar roles for several years, but you know you have the skills and motivation to thrive in this new field. You just need to get your foot in the door for an interview.
WHY WORK WITH MELANIE?
If you are considering a career pivot, you are in the right place. During the last eight years, Melanie has spent the majority of her time working with transitioning veterans and military spouses who are making these types of career changes.
She knows how to ask the right questions and identify the information you need to showcase. Making an impact on paper is critical, and her format and design techniques complement the wording of your career story to make sure you get noticed.
CASE STUDY: Military Spouse seeks to transition from Equipment Sales to Personal Finance.
Background: Caitlin held some serious responsibility, overseeing regional sales of equipment across the West Coast of the USA. But she didn’t love it. Her dream was to work for a family-owned company helping people like you and I achieve financial freedom through sound investment practices. She had just completed her Financial Planning Certificate but had no contacts in the industry or location she was moving to.
Services Provided: Resume and Cover Letter
Result: Three separate companies approached Caitlin within 24 hours of posting her new resume on an online job board. Despite not being in location, she was able to interview and secure a job in her new industry three months ahead of time.
Nailed it! In-person interview next month. The phone interview opened with, “I look at hundreds of resumes and yours just seems to be set up to be read online and was so engaging. It’s one of the most impressive ones I’ve ever seen.” – Caitlin
