If you're changing fields or going back to work, sometimes a chronological resume may not display your expertise. It's a good idea to try different formats so you can demonstrate both your working experience and your new technical skill set, as well as your soft skills. You can also include a resume summary which briefly explains your capabilities. Look over some resume writing tips before you write this document.
At job interviews, hiring managers may ask why you went back to school and why you chose a field of study. This is a great time to explain why you thought more education was necessary and how your new skill set will be an asset to the company. Additionally, you can talk about your transferable skills and point out why they're relevant.
