How do I prepare my resume for future job opportunities in a different field of expertise when I have been employed at my current job for 11 years? 

Answered by Taylor, Hiring Expert at Archer Daniels Midland, on March 13, 2018

Try to gain as much non-work related experience as possible that you can add to your resume. For example, if you want to work for a veterinarian, but you currently work in retail-- start volunteering at a pet shelter or pick up a part time/weekend job grooming or taking care of animals. Also be prepared to explain in an interview why you are pursuing this career change.
