Landing the Job - Time to Update your Resume!

Rewrite/update/re-work your resume to reflect your current career objectives. Remember that your resume speaks volumes about you, particularly if you're looking to shift gears into a new field in which you have no directly applicable experience. Be sure to note your skills and capabilities, the personal qualifications that you will bring to a job rather than industry-specific experience. And, emphasize transferable skills such as leadership, flexibility, teamwork, and problem-solving. Also, be sure to highlight prior measurable/demonstrable accomplishments.

Use your cover letter as an effective tool to shed light on why you want to enter a new field. Quickly recap the research you've done to prove that you're not making a rash decision. You need to illustrate that you're committed to this change and that you can step in and contribute to the company immediately.
