Can someone proofread my resume please?

  1. 0
    I am looking for a new job and want a resume that will get me an interview I currently work as needed as a clinical instructor, but am looking for a hospital job, similar to the one I just left this month. With the info I have now, I still have some extra space at the bottom of the page if there is extra info I need to add.
    Thanks so much.

    I believe you're just trying to show off your accomplishments

    Actually I am applying for jobs. What part of the resume do you recommend I delete to avoid "showing off" yet still land a job?

    Where is your cover letter?

    Erm...that's a whole lot of personal information to be posting online.

    Not sure if that is your whole resume but more than likely it will be filtered through a web system set to look for key words, so it would be more likely to get into the system if you identify specific skills and talents associated with the job you are looking for and then find a way to expand on your job experience by using those words.

    Sort of like a backward google search.

    Just saying your job title and where you have worked isn't going to get you very far, you're competing with a gazillion other people. Best to lay out the specifics of your duties and resposnibilities, in bullets or some similar format.

    There are some good sites online for sample resumes.

    I don't know if this is the order you have things listed in but the most recent item should be first. For example in your education list your MSN first, then BSN and last the ASN. Also do the same thing in your employment history. I had a bit of a time figuring that section out. Since you are currently employed as an clinical instructor put that first.

    In your past jobs section provide should be provided. (Provided total patient care) For the clinincal nurse job leave supervise as it is since you are currently supervising people.

    Make sure you leave spaces between sections so the resume looks nice and is easy to read. If you need to fill the page more list your education like this instead of all on 1 line:

    Associate of Science in Nursing, 2003
    Northeast Iowa Community College
    City, State

    Also, don't forget your cover letter. That is your real chance to sell yourself. Good luck.

    Should your job description be in the past tense? "Assisted residents" or "provided". Also agree with above, latest stuff first. Above all else, it should be easy and fast to read.

    Why did you just leave a hospital job?

    Are you in an area where jobs are plentiful at this time?

    I'm taking a technical writing course and we just finished resumes. So yes, for a past job provided or assisted is fine. Current job - provide, assist.

    It looks pretty good to me, just put everything in order of most recent first. Did you do anything "extra"? It looks like you just showed up and didn't get fired (not a bad thing). Did you create any job aids, training tools, write any policies, write any articles, attend conferences, get awards, serve on a committee? I'm saying it looks real solid (I especially like the PALS Instrutor) but where's the bling? You must have done something more, write it down. Don't avoid "showing off". You want to blow away the competition so you can get a job. Good luck.
