Put some effort into writing a compelling cover letter.

Your job here is to demonstrate the ease with which you will move into this new career. This is particularly important if you are a relatively experienced candidate who is willing to take on a more junior role in exchange for the opportunity to switch fields.You will still need to have a more traditional resume format on hand in case it’s requested, but the letter will serve as a good introduction and pique the hiring manager’s interest in interviewing you.Keep in mind that this format does not work as well for blind job applications (via a job board) that specifically ask for a resume as some recruiters/managers may not know what to do with a letter with no resume — or may see it as inability to follow directions.A common mistake career changers make is to use the same resumes that worked in their previous careers.It’s always smart to customize your resume for each new position to which you apply, reworking to highlight the skills and past experience most relevant for each job.
