Tom Marvolo Riddle (a.k.a. Voldemort)
How Lynda F., a TopResume writer, helped He Who Must Not Be Named
"Tom was eager to redeem himself after some failed leadership roles. He recently went back to school to get a degree in education and is seeking to move into a classroom setting... I used a career change resume format to showcase Tom's abilities and demonstrate how they could be leveraged in a new role."
If you're considering a career change, take a page from Voldemort's book. Consider investing in a course, degree or certification program to help fill a skill gap and make you a more attractive candidate to prospective employers.
