Since you have a master’s degree, you could teach at the college level. Trust me, it’s much less stressful than teaching high school or middle school!

Go to and look at two sets of books.
One: VGM Career Books. They often start with the phrase, “Resumes for…” as in “Resumes for Communications Careers” and “Resumes for Mid-Career Job Changes.”
Two: the Real-Resumes Series with titles such as “Real-Resumes for Career Changers: Actual Resumes and Cover Letters” and “Real-Resumes for Teachers” which includes a section for teachers who want to change careers.
These are the two sets of books I recommend. As far as getting help from a real-live person…. how about the Career Placement Center of the University where you graduated (or any local university)? I’ve used books and my university.
Hope this helps.

Don’t know if anyone else has mentioned this, but using a skills-based resume will help for parallel job changes (i.e., moving to a different field, position, industry). There, you emphasize categories of skills, such as communication, computer abilities, and other such things. I usually create a category that addresses the job position itself, which changes, of course, every time I apply for something new.

If you have an interest, you can work in a company as a trainer, or a technology trainer, or in grant writing. Other sources include companies at professional conventions, educational services centers, college teaching, and tutoring companies.

Look into working for publishing companies that produce textbooks and teacher materials. (example: Scott Foresman, McGraw Hill, Houghton Mifflin). I suspect your English background, combined with your teaching experiences, will leave you qualified for content writing, editing, and more…..

Just a thought…. good luck
