First time applying with some experience under my belt!

  1. Have not applied to any jobs since getting first jobs as a new grad! Hoping for any suggestions and advice! Thank you so much in advance.

    Should I place an objective to start my resume? Also I feel that the SNF job description and duties does not fully describe my responsibilities.
