We are all aware that finding a job as a nurse these days can be quite a challenge, as there are more and more people who are now into the nursing field. So, how do you best all the other applicants? Have an impressive resume. Your resume gives a broader description of yourself and your educational and professional background. Here are two very important tips on how to make employers read your resume.
1. Experience over Education
Employers notice your professional experience first before your educational background. So you do not have to go into too much detail on your education. Simply put in where you graduated, what degree you earned and what year you graduated. What you need to impress them with is your professional skills. Make sure to include your areas of expertise and your accomplishments in the industry.
2. Make it Short and Concise
Many applicants think that the longer their resume, the more chances it’s going to be noticed. It will certainly be noticed but for the wrong reasons. You do not want to submit a 3-page application. Two pages should be your limit. Put all the right information in it that are relevant to the job you are applying for.
