Ok, I applied for a position for a specialty outpatient position. (ortho) I seriously thought listed myortho experience as part of my skills on my resume. After looking at my resume I see now that I only listed that I was part of professional staff RN at this particular hospital and just listed the usual nursing skills, none of which that pertains to the ortho specialty.
I know that generally computers are the ones that pick out certain resumes for buzz words that their looking for regarding the position. Obviously this was a big oops that was omitted and I realized it AFTER I looked at my resume after submitted. I know, I know how stupid but it is what it is.
On the off chance that my resume is still selected out and "if" I got an interview. I would think it would come up in an interview why I didn't have an integral piece like that on my resume. I mean come on, I'm applying for an ortho outpatient and I have ortho experience but I don't have that on a resume???? Maybe I'm already sunk at this point even if I would get called on the interview
because to me, it just makes me look ineffiecient as I didn't evne proof my resume before sending
On the off chance that I would get called in for an interview, is there anything I could say to rectify why the omission? (I've since added it on my resume so if I went they would have a hard copy, but still...the original doesn't have that info, how do I explain why?)
