UNSURE HOW TO STRUCTURE YOUR MIXED CAREER?
3 WAYS TO FIX IT!
Questions on how to “package” or “structure” your resume from a mixed background come up all the time. More surprisingly than not, people from all ages ask this specific question often. There are several different ways to go about it.
First, you can’t just throw out all of your experience onto the resume, which is common. So you need to understand where you are currently and identify what direction (career, position) you would like to move forward in.
Then once you have decided that next you need to incorporate that into a strong written profile summary on your resume/cover letter. Then, in the body of the resume, filter out anything that doesn’t connect to the job you’re trying to get.
For example, one of my coaching clients worked for a real estate company, mostly “making sure tenants paid their rent on time,” but he wanted to be a financial analyst. “He really liked the financial analysis courses he took in college, and he excelled at them, including winning a couple of awards for projects he had worked on. So I designed a resume around those projects and highlighted the roughly 20% of his real estate job that involved financial analysis.” The client got a financial analyst job.
It’s about reflecting where you are, identifying what direction you would like to go in and incorporating that into your resume.
