CORE SKILLS & EXPERIENCE

 
This is where you can give a brief overview of your career history. You can either write it as a short paragraph or as bullet points.
 
This is also the place to briefly talk about why you’re making a career change and explain why you’d be good in a new role.
 
Look at the job ad and what skills/experience the employer wants and briefly use examples from your old career to showcase why you’d be good in the new one. Transferable skills are key to this!

ACHIEVEMENTS
