Improving your resume as a new gradRegister Today!
- by sallynewnurse Apr 5, '11I graduated over a year ago could not find a job anywhere in Southern California. I had posted more than 75 applications and resumes for a New Grad Program, or any other position available. Finnally a recruiter told me to "UP" my resume, to make it look like I was "above average, above the crowd". I went to a faciltiy in Corona and took ECG certification, ACLS, PALS, and NRP. The skills not only icreased my knowlege and skills, it helped improve my self-esteem and understanding of cardiac patients. I was shocked when the local hospital called and said they were impressed by my resume and offered me a job in Post-partum, my love! Yea, I have a job!Last edit by Silverdragon102 on Apr 5, '11 : Reason: TOS pm to member
- Sep 12, '12 by ntaylor09I want to take ACLS too but am worried that I will be wasting my time and not pass since I don't have any experience. Feedback of your experience would be great!
- Sep 12, '12 by AeternaI'd love to take the ACLS course but my friend took it upon being hired in ICU, but it still cost her somewhere around $200 to take it. I think she stomped her feet a little and got reimbursed eventually - after all, she was taking it as a requirement for her new job - but I have no real interest in critical care and so wouldn't apply for such a job. I'd be paying $200 just to have a certification I don't need for a job where I won't necessarily use it just so I can have it on my resume >_>
