Steps

  1. 1
    At some point in our lives, we may want to change our career.
    How can we best prepare our CV? We need to remember that the primary goals at sending our CV are to be called for an interview and to show progression. We need to be able to show progression, even if we are making a change.

  2. 2
    One way to highlight progression is our personal statement, which is our professional profile or objective.
    It's a good vocation for us to address any skills that we currently have from our last position that we can apply to the position about which we are speaking.

    We can also address our personal statement in our cover letter.
    It does not need to be in great detail. That can be covered in the interview when we are called back.

    We can also tailor our employment history.
    We can use the skills that we gain at our last job, where we worked in such a way that we become applicable to the job that we are seeking. At many jobs, we will acquire some customer service and negotiation skills. We need to highlight those skills in our employment history, so that they can be read as transferable skills. So, we should definitely use them.

    When we go from nonprofit to other (hospitality, for example) jobs, we can focus on a lot of skills gained in the nonprofit positions for the first major jobs that we receive.
    We can deal with a lot of customers if we work in association. We can also acquire excellent writing, sale, and meeting planning skills. These are excellent transferable skills, especially for someone going into the hospitality industry. So, there are ways when we can take our current experience and apply it to the experience that we want to have.
