Good morning all!
I have been going over many posts in this board tying to revamp my resume. I have applied to close to 70 openings with no luck. So I've decided to try a new approach. I have 0 hospital experience, I was a server for 6 years, and I was recently transferred to the pharmacy in my current job (my manager hoped it would help my chances of getting a job).
I would love to hear any thoughts on to how to make this better (no matter how harsh) its almost a page without and job history descriptions. Now I am stuck on my cover letter. I know it should be short and sweet, but can you guys suggest pointers for what to include.
So far this is what I have come up with....
