Making a Career Change

Have you ever found yourself stuck in a career you never intended on pursuing but don’t know how to make a switch? Believe it or not, this happens to many people and it’s possible to flip careers without additional schooling or previous experience. A career change can be drastic or small, but regardless, it has to start somewhere. 

A great first step is revising your resume to showcase universal accomplishments that can be seen as beneficial to your goal career. For example: an educator looking to move into the business world might showcase their management or data collection skills. Another plan of action, if possible is to work as an intern in the field you wish to enter. There are many remote internships (such as mine) that offer the opportunity to gain experience on your own time. 

Whatever your plan of action is, Career Service Station is here to help. We offer resume makeovers and career advice to assist you in following your dreams. 

If you’re looking to work in the business world, Braathe Enterprises hires many remote interns with flexible schedules to help kick off your career. Check out our internships: http://www.braatheenterprises.com/internships/

Don’t Let Your GPA Get In Your Way on Your Resume

I’m asked often by my students whether or not they should put their GPA on their resume. My answer is always NO!!!!

For example, let’s say you are going up against a candidate with very similar skill sets and experience, but they have a 3.4 and you have a 3.3. If all else is equal, that numeric qualifier may be the decisive difference.

As well, I’ve had both managers and recruiters personally tell me that in some roles, they won’t even consider someone with a 3.0 or higher listed on their resume because that may indicate that they lack street smarts.

How do you show you are a good student? List honors or high honors, but don’t list the GPA. As well, list some of the courses you have taken.

Want your resume improved? Send your resume to contactus@careerservicestation.com and we can give you a quote on your resume. Our “Oil Change” starts at $50 and our “Tuneup” costs $100-200 depending on the amount of work needed on your resume.

Turnaround time is generally within 48 hours of receipt, and we will give you the opportunity for giving feedback once we send you our initial revision before you submit payment.
