A potential employer asks for your resume and read it. If the contents of your resume catches his attention, then, you have a higher chance of getting the job. So, how do you create an attention-grabbing resume? Here are the top 5 things that Clearday Healthcare Staffing suggests you include in the resume.
1. Your Contact Information
Do forget to write down your contact information in your resume. A potential employer will use such information to get in touch with you regarding the whole recruitment process. Some of the contact details you should include are:
- Home and email address
- Phone numbers
Tip : Make sure to use a professional-looking or professional-sounding email address. Keep it short, as well. As for the phone numbers, make sure that you will list down all of the numbers they can use to contact you at any time, such as home phone or mobile phone.
2. Your Qualifications
This is the section where most employers spend a longer time to look at. In this section, you will be able to highlight your achievements and skills. Through this section, the employer will have a general idea as to whether you are fit to covet the position that they are offering.
Try to tailor-fit your list of achievements and skills to the position that you are applying for. For instance, if you are applying for a nursing position, then, you might want to state that you are cum laude or you have won awards relevant to the field.
3. Your Educational Background
Employers may either consider your educational background or not. Some employers may give you a chance if they know that you come from a prestigious school known for producing good nurses. Others may not put great emphasis on this. When listing your schools, you should start with the most recent or your highest attainment. You also need to write down the name and address of the educational institution and the years attended.
4. Your Employment History
The employment history is also a critical section. Your employment history will let the potential employer know how much experience you have in the industry. Some employers may call your previous employers to verify the information so you better be honest.
5. Objective Statement
The objective statement is optional but is important if you are trying to apply for a specific job position. Tailor-fit the statement to the specific position and clearly state what the purpose of your resume is.
