Resume Help!!

  1. I graduated in May 2011 and after getting married and moving to another state im currently in missouri with my license. I have seen SO many samples of different types of resumes and they all seem to list different things. Can yall help with what I should put? Should I have a different resume for each job with more pertinent criteria for each job or just a general resume? My goal is something in womens health, nicu, peds. Thanks!

    note: it copied weird. Sorry!

    you are the cream of the crop. I wish I had the half of your experience. I am a rookie but I am pretty good at resume. Change how you worded your objective. It sounds more like what the job can do for YOU. it has to sound like what you can do for the employer.

    Thank you for that comment. I was just blessed to have awesome clinical instructors who gave me the opportunity to practice in my desired fields for experience. I'm still a rookie though as well I will work on the objective, thank you!

    what about....

    "to acquire a lasting neonatal icu r.n. position that will further develop my skills and knowledge in order to be an even greater asset to the company and our customers."

    it still comes across to me as being more focused on your benefit. it must be the words "further" and "my" used together. if it was me, i would only say "to acquire a lasting neonatal icu r.n. position."

    it would make only a tiny difference but that tiny might be what makes or breaks.

    chamber of commerce or unemployment offices have people who would critique resumes for free.
