It’s common to get nervous about marketing yourself. Especially if you’re trying to switch fields or land a higher-level role, it’s tough to know how to highlight a certain skill or strength if it wasn’t the core part of your recent job. If you’re interested in working with a certain tool, platform or process and have some familiarity with it, it’s critically important that you highlight that information in your resume.
When planning to show a professional pivot or progression, a career summary could start with:
- ‘Aspiring Project Manager & Customer Success Specialist…’
- 'Junior Data Analyst & Marketing Specialist…’
The goal is to weave together where you’ve been and where you’re headed.
When we’re in a low point at work, it can be hard to trust our own ability to learn and grow. Remember that you are capable and intelligent! You are a work in progress, and your next job should give you the opportunity to continue to evolve professionally.
