Eliminate the Vote for Obama campaign. You may like Obama and it may have been cool to work for those folks, but you never know. The HR person may have autographed pictures of Ronald Reagan enshrined in candles and American flags at the house. Your political views are none of your employer's bussiness and can only hurt you if the person making decisions has an opposing view.

Eliminate the real estate. It is considered a higher job skill. Unfortunately, many HR folks raise a red flag if you apply for a job lesser than what you did before. They will feel you are desperate and will ditch them the moment another employer starts talking a living wage. Most folks that hire CNAs pay a pittance and depend on you having no other options to keep you coming to work.

Consider why you need a resume in the first place. Most of these places only take one look at this, smile, then throw it in some file and make you fill out an application. All the info they really need is the places you have worked with numbers and your CNA number. Now, you get further in Allied Health like RN, COTA, anesthesia tech, PT, ect that is a different story.

That said, maybe you can apply to dietary or another department as well. It is much easier to get in something if you are already in the door. Getting more education is also something to consider as education can overcome lack of experience sometimes if the degree/ lisc is in demand enough. You will have less folks to compete against though even RN is becoming overcrowded in some areas.

Thank you , I never thought about that (the obama campaign and the real estate). That makes a lot of sense. I will be updating my resume today ;)

I will give those departments consideration when I become a RN. Thanks for your help.
