9781475093919: Real-Resumes for Social Work & Counseling Jobs

In this book you will find resumes and cover letters of people who wish to enter the social work field, advance in it, or exit into new careers. You will gain insights into how to transition social work and counseling experience to other types of work. See how to communicate job experience such as case work, counselor, victim advocate, human services counselor, youth services specialist, family services case worker, income maintenance counselor, and many other jobs. Get an insight into how other professionals have advanced or transitioned to new employment arenas. There are more than 100 "real" resumes and cover letters shown which were used by real people to find occupations in the social work or counseling field. The purpose of the book is to give models for people to use in creating their own resumes and cover letters tailored to social work and counseling. A word of advice from Editor Anne McKinney: "For those people with social work or counseling backgrounds or an interest in social work or counseling employment, this book will be a career enhancer. It is often to your advantage to know how to use the lingo and terminology of an industry on your resume when you are seeking employment. On the other hand, interests can change over time, and sometimes people who have been very successful in one field decide to change careers. Sometimes you may end up living in a town where job opportunities are not abundant in the social work or counseling field. So it's important to know how to transfer your education and skills to 'greener pastures' when employment opportunities in your field are scarce. Whether you seek to get 'in the front door' of the social work and counseling field or are exiting 'through the back door' on your way to other types of employment, this book will be a valuable aid." Praise for this book and other books in the Real-Resumes Series: “Distinguished by its highly readable samples." - Library Journal "These excellent new guides don't just provide the usual coverage on how to write a resume. They provide industry-specific examples, industry-specific tips and cautions, and industry-specific strategies based on real-world resumes. Since many technical types aren't writers, this comes as a special gift; select a winning format, plug in your background specs, and away you go. It's that easy--with Real-Resumes in hand."-- The Midwest Book Review “Part of an excellent real-resumes series. Impressive, with sophisticated, persuasive, and nuanced guidance.” –The Book Reader Testimonials from people who have successfully used this book: "After years of handling heavy case loads, I needed a break from social work and wanted to transfer skills to other fields. I found a new career in the corporate world, thanks to Real-Resumes." D. Dietrich "I knew I wanted to continue in the human services field but I wanted out of school counseling. By following the techniques I learned in Real-Resumes, I achieved my career goals." T. Bulgari "Moving from counseling in the public sector to human resources in the corporate world became possible because of the Real-Resumes Series." C. Chandrika "I moved from Parole Officer to Insurance Specialist easily when I learned how to communicate my experience and transfer my skills to another industry." L. Vogel
