[get the Job You Want With the Skills and Experience You Already Have!]Book - 2010
For the many Americans who continue to find themselves out of work or barely hanging on to jobs in troubled industries, New Resume New Career offers a calling card to a new line of work. In it, readers learn how to transform their chronological resumes into functional ones that best position their skills and experiences for the jobs of the future. Included in the book are 50 profiles of job seekers looking to either find a similar career in a different industry or a new career within the same industry. Each profile shows the candidate's existing resume followed by a transformed resume that presents the candidate's experience, skills, and accomplishments in a way that positions the candidate for a specific new career. Special pointers are included to help readers understand the motivation behind each change so they are better prepared to transform their own resumes.
