If you want to keep this format this is how I would go, but I also suggest you look at whats called a "combination resume". Its very similar to what you have here but think of it as a 2 part resume. Your SUMMARY OF QUALIFICATIONS
tells them what makes you qualified, and your EXPERIENCE or RELEVANT SKILLS
contains the situations that prove your qualified (EXPERIENCE
is different from WORK HISTORY
) A combination resume will allow you to not focus so much on the specific duties of previous jobs and focus more on the skills you have obtained.
If I have confused you here is an example,
SUMMARY OF QUALIFICATIONS:
- Maintain current ABC DEF and GHI qualifications
- Passionate, caring professional with a "patient first, patient always" mentality
- etc. etc.
Volunteered over 200 hours last year with organizations such as American red cross etc.
- Add as many bullets as you need in these areas
- Ensured the sanitation of dormitory buildings, keeping over 750 soldiers safe and healthy
- etc etc etc.
then work experience but it would just include the company name, your position, dates worked and maybe address. Then include the rest of what is on your other resume like your education, certs, professional affiliations, etc.
These are just suggestions, remember to make sure the resume reflects YOU so when your being interviewed, they don't see a different person on paper than who's in the chair in front of them.
