Appling for internal pos, clean up my resume?

  1. Hey all,

    I'm applying for an internal position with the facility where I currently work (trying to transfer to another unit with more room for advancement).

    A friend currently in the unit im interested in recommended I stop by and introduce myself and leave a resume.

    Below is my resume: anything to add? I'm mostly worried about the current position and translating it from external application jargon to something an internal hire would use. Don't worry about the formatting I took out specific ID info.Since this is a transfer and the (hopefully) new unity manager knows my floor is there anything specific i should add?

    I recommend a cover letter or something explaining why you currently have 2 jobs while also going to school. Is your current job at "Health System" full time or part time? And that second job ... how big of a committment is it? Imagining myself as the hiring manager, I would be hesitant to hire someone spreading herself too thin. Are you really committed to a career in MY specialty and on MY unit? I would be afraid that I would be standing in line waiting for your attention because you might be too busy with your other committments to "give much" to the job I was trying to fill.

    Not that what you are doing is necessarily bad ... but it would raise those questions and you should provide that clarification or something to show your committment to the job you are seeking.

    Thanks for the feedback! The second job is contract maybe only two shifts a month doing health clinic type of things. Nothing too time consuming. I'm attempting to transfer from my current position in health system to this other one full time to full time. I've been going to school since last year 3/4 time. I'm in no way interested in getting my CRNA or NP. When I stop in to talk to the Ast Mgr I plan on relaying this information, but I'll definitely take all of the advice you're willing to give. Thanks again.
