Description - Career Change Resume: How To Reinvent Your Resume And Land Your Dream Job by Karen Hofferber
Corporate downsizing, massive layoffs, and the dot-com downfall have displaced millions of adults in the past few years. According to the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics, mass layoff events were up 40.6 percent in 2001 compared to 2000. Many of these workers, squeezed out by a slowdown or consolidation in their industry, will find themselves forced to change careers. However, the real audience for this book exists apart from the ups and downs of the unemployment rate. As of 2002, experts now estimate that the average worker will change careers (not just jobs) anywhere from three to seven times, regardless of industry, profession, or educational background. These career changes are motivated by many factors: the desire for more of a work/life balance; the need for new challenges; the continually changing demands of the knowledge-based economy; companies' new willingness to shed workers during slowdowns; and of course, simple dislike for the current job or career.
In a recent nationwide survey by the Rockport Institute, a full 70 percent of mid-career professionals said they either had or were currently considering a career change, and 64 percent of college seniors expressed doubts that they had chosen the right major. Written by Monster.com's official resume experts, The Career-Change Resume will help all these hopeful but uncertain career-changers reinvent their resumes to help them reinvent themselves.
