This is important that your resume makes you stand out among all other candidates. Your employer browses hundred resumes a day and may throw your papers away even without reading them to the end. I decided to rely on professionals. After that, all my further applications have led to job interviews.

Thank you so much for this info Karen, it is greatly appreciated and very kind of you to post it.

I'm an older guy in the midst of a career change and am into my 8th month as a working RN. I have an ADN degree and am about to enroll for my BSN.

Working full time at a long term care facility (sub-acute and dementia) and part time at the county jail. Paying my dues and glad for the initial opportunities but ready to branch out. This is great info.

I'm in Central NJ if anyone wants to touch base. Have been considering finding a specialty. Maybe dialysis or addiction services. I like psych too.

Good luck everyone.

There is a lot of good information here. However, I do advise you to include information regarding your family in your cover letter. First off, it is irrelevant. It only becomes relevant if you are offered an interview and, for example, need to work certain days because of childcare, etc. I also recommend that you do not mention anything that indicates that you belong to a "protected class," including race, creed, religion, color, national origin, etc.
