NURSING RESUMES – IN CONTEXT
    Resumes introduce YOU and showcase what
    exactly you “bring to the table”
    in the here-and-now.

               What this means:

 State a specific goal
 Support that goal throughout your resume

 Provide concrete details to support your claims

 Infuse warmth and personality
CONTEXT – CONTINUED…
             Important to Note:
 Generic, all-purpose resumes won’t help you
 Simply listing duties is ineffective, bland

 Nursing is a calling; it’s also a BUSINESS

 Credentials alone will get you nowhere

 Be careful of Resume Templates


    Your Resume is a TOOL, as is your Cover Letter,
    your Credentials, your Networking efforts – Tools
     to support your Overall Job Search Strategy
YOU MUST BRING YOUR A-GAME
   Recognize where you’re at in your career –
                and embrace it!

   Whatever your age, whatever school you’ve
  attended, whatever you’ve read or heard about
         the current economic realities –
                 forget about it!

  Be prepared on all fronts, put your best foot
      forward, stretch your comfort zone –
             and BE YOURSELF!
GO THE EXTRA MILE
