Anyone...please? I could really use the feedback

hi there. i'll give it a try. to me.. your resume is extremely wordy.. way too long for someone who is showing that s/he has been working for only 4 years. you should better categorize and organize your tasks/duties. some of them are obvious to the position and some are repeated. just make sure your most important tasks/duties are listed first.

let me first critique what you have for your current employer:

Professional Experience

Caregiver Company, City State Caregiver August 2012-Present

Hands-on assistance with Activates of Daily Living

Assist with general skin care

Assist with transfers (bed to chair, chair to bed, chair to commode, and wheel-chair to car)

Empty or change external urinary and ostomy bags.

Assist with clients directed non-invasive care

Assist clients with blood sugar checks

Provided companionship and conversation

Provided stabilization and assistance with walking

Prepared meals and cleaning up meal-related items

Provided medication reminders and appointment reminders

i would change this to:

Caregiver Company, City State August 2012-Present

Home Caregiver

-Assist with general skin care/blood sugar checks/meal preparation and clean up

-Empty/change external urinary and ostomy bags

-Assist with walking/transfers: to and from bed/chair/commode/wheel-chair/car

-Provide medication/appointment reminders

-Provide companionship/conversation

Private Duty-Family Name, City State October 2010-August 2012

Home Caregiver for end stage dementia client

-Provided personal care services: bathing/skin care/oral care/bed pan/bed making

-Assisted with medications/procedures as directed and prescribed by physician

-Measured and recorded intake/output and weight gain/loss

-Emptied catheter/colostomy drainage bags

-Supported plan of care by assisting with enema cleansing/hot and cold applications/simple non-sterile dressing

-Provided encouragement/emotional support to client ad family

-Supported plan of rehabilitation by assisting with transfers/walking/ROM exercises

-Documented and reported daily observations/services/activities/condition changes to nurse/therapist

for places of employment that are kind of irrelevant to a position you are seeking, just keep it basic and simple because if it's in a different line of business, no one really knows what you are talking about. i think you should just limit the tasks/duties to the most important.. you have too many...

Company Name, City CA April 2008-August 2010

Account Executive

-Secured and maintained new/current accounts

-Assisted customers during showroom visits

-Provided merchandise up-sells and closing sales

-Served as liaison between local office and warehouses

-Maintained client files: quotes/invoices/orders/cancellations/payments

-Oversaw all order changes/cancellations to ensure proper procedures were met

-Coordinated delivery/pickup/setup logistics

-Managed scheduling/hiring/training/payroll

other things... if you decide to leave your high school on your resume, i think you should put your previous administrative jobs on it to show that you didn't just start working in 2008. you graduated high school in 1998, they might wonder why there is a large gap in your timeline ..like why is 10 yrs of your life missing on your resume?... so i would list them and for the task/duties, i would just list maybe two of three of the most important since they are kind of irrelevant.

for your skills section, a lot of them are repeated below as your tasks/duties and then some of your tasks/duties are not listed up here. and then you also mention residents/clients/patients.. which is kind of inconsistent.. i personally wouldn't include a "skills" section. but there are skills not listed below as your tasks/duties which are important such as your to organize it better. your last line: "Capable of managing bowel and bladder and recording results" made me laugh! haha.

i hope this helps some!
