When you’ve decided to change careers, you play at a disadvantage compared with applicants who have experience in the industry. So, your main focus should be on skills that can be transferred to this new career. Do not waste time simply reciting your professional experience in another field. Focus on presenting not only the skills acquired in your experience that are transferable, but your potential as an employee in the new industry.
