Isabella has experience as an activities assistant at a retirement home, but believes she has been overlooked for positions in social services due to her lack of education

Canada News, Canada Headlines

Now that her kids have grown up, stay-at-home-mom Isabella, 52, is seeking full-time employment. But without a degree, she’s wondering what her options are for finding work in the social services sector. “I enjoy helping people,” Isabella writes. “When I am able to make a difference in someone’s life by assisting and guiding them, it energizes me and gives me a sense of purpose.”

We reached out to career coach Jen Narayan and two professionals from Family Services of Greater Vancouver to review Isabella’s resume and offer their tips for her next steps.While Isabella’s resume is detailed and info-packed, Ms. Narayan believes that it lacks focus and is too long. “Isabella should make her resume just one page,” she advises. She can accomplish this by cutting down her summary and key skills section while also incorporating her technical skills into this top section.

Ms. Narayan believes that education is a good investment. But given Isabella’s age, she might consider pursuing a part-time program and adding this to her resume. “When someone sees that she is enrolled, her chances of being called back will increase significantly, even if she has not completed the program,” says Ms. Narayan. Isabella should also target her resume to each job she’s applying for by ensuring her resume aligns with the posting’s key skills and required experience.
