What you’ve learned from past jobs and life experiences is incredibly useful to land your next job. And if you want your next job to be in a new industry, you must harness those past skills and transfer them to a new role. Follow these steps:

  1. Decide what you do well (and enjoy doing) — Consider past work experiences. What do you excel at doing, and what do you enjoy doing? Write this info down.

  2. Make a list of your job duties — Create a list of your current and past job duties. What have your responsibilities been?

  3. Record your accomplishments — Create another list of specific successes you’ve accomplished — and include any specific data or information.

  4. Use this information to craft a NEW resume for the NEW role you want — Once you find a job listing for a role you’ve never had, create a custom resume WITH THE INFO YOU GATHERED in steps 1-3. Then you can use this new resume for other job opportunities in this new industry as well.

I've been doing gig work for the past two years since the pandemic, mostly delivery. I have a BA, but want to get into something like data analyst in the tech world.

I have experience in manufacturing and want to get into something else that is more reliable for the future, before all manufacturing jobs are gone in the US. Not sure though.

I've been working in food service for a while as a server and bartender sometimes. I'd like to work from home in some capacity.
