Hey travelers how do you do your resumes?

Specializes in med-surg-ortho-. Has 9 years experience.

I was wondering if you all could share your tips on how you do your resumes being a traveler. I am starting to have concerns since I have been doing quite a bit of travel and agency work in many different states. I am afraid it may hinder me when I do apply for a permanent job sometime in the near future..........any advice?

What I have doen is list the Agency and then each place I went to through the Agency

Example: Experience With Agencies

Agency ABC From Contract Date Start to Date End

Address Facillity I worked at

Telephone Position I worked, ie Travel RN Med/ Surg

If more than one contract with same Agency

List those Places as outline above

Next Agency Same outline as above

Hope this helps,

I do mine as follows:

Travel Company/ Agency 2001-2009

Medical University

Hospital A - RN NICU

Hospital B - RN Level II Nursery

Hospital C - RN NICU

If you have more than one travel company or agency, then list it the same with all places worked underneath. It shows that you didn't flip around with numerous jobs and also shows you have the ability to adapt to several areas/hospitals at the same time. I have never had it hinder me. I have had nurse managers tell me it shows that I can go into anywhere and get the job done. It has never hindered me. Good luck!
