about this template.

It’s a huge decision deciding to change career, after all, you’ve probably invested a lot of time and effort, gained friends and are worried about the prospect of the unknown. However, if you find your current job and future prospects unfulfilling then it might be time to look further afield.

Understandably you’d be worried, particularly if you’re moving into a completely different position, that your current experience may not be relevant but don’t forget about your transferable skills. For example, if you’ve worked with data analytics this demonstrates that you can process figures or maybe you’ve displayed good team management skills. Also, any hobbies or volunteering work that you have done may have given you relevant experience for the position that you’re applying for.

When writing your cover letter don’t focus on the reasons why you’re leaving your current role, this can come across as extremely negative, but instead highlight the opportunities that your new career could offer such as developing a new skill set or the ability to work with projects or campaigns that you weren’t previously able to.

Whether you’re looking for a new challenge or your current career possibilities aren’t keeping your interest, check out our Career Change Cover Letter Template for tips and advice on how to really emphasise your transferable skills.
