» What does my CV need to do if I am changing career?

If you have decided that your current function (e.g., Sales or HR) or industry is really not something you want to stay in, then nine times out of ten your current CV will be inadequate.  As any recruiter will tell you, your CV needs to speak to the employer’s specifications around knowledge and skills, so presenting a CV that faithfully reflects your past roles and responsibilities will make you look like a complete mismatch.

In most cases, but not all, you will be forced to present your experience in what is called a functional CV format.  A functional CV, as distinct from a reverse chronological CV, will bring out your transferable skills and experience that demonstrates potential to perform the role.  It also downplays your past roles so that the reader focuses on the relevant aspects of your experience. 

The best strategy is to focus on areas of experience where you have real strength: if you can convince an employer that you are strong in 1-2 core skills for the new role then you stand a much better chance of success.  You can then position your other experience as an added bonus to set you part from others.

It is always useful to consult a professional cv writer when seeking to change career as it is quite a challenge to step outside of your past to recast your experience in a totally different light.
