One resume does not necessarily fit all situations. Take for example someone who wishes to change careers, but does not have any specific work history to go with that change. How do you re-orient your resume so that it can show you in the best light, yet maintain credibility and still be an honest snapshot of your work?
The key is to emphasize those core skills which demonstrate your expertise in the ‘new career’ you want. Instead of putting together a typical chronological resume listing all of your jobs and responsibilities, change your strategy and put together what is known as a functional resume that highlights your strengths as they relate to your career change.
