Course Description

As a healthcare professional, you need a highly-targeted resume that will catch the eye of any Hiring Manager in the span of a few seconds as they sift through hundreds of resumes every week. Most resume courses are offered by veterans in the Human Resources field. While HR professionals also see a high volume of resumes for a wide variety of careers, you need a course that has pinpoint accuracy in teaching you the required elements of a resume specific to the Healthcare field, and without distractions. Learn how to construct a professional resume from a current practicing Hiring Manager who oversees both Clinical and Allied Health positions for a large healthcare organization.

  • Learn how to stand out among hundreds of candidates
  • Find out what pertinent information is needed, and what you can exclude
  • Produce a resume that has the architecture and clarity to land you the interview
  • Target your resume for the specific job you want

Not all courses should be created equally, as not all career choices are the same. This course will provide you the tools you need to build a resume specific to the front-line workers in the healthcare industry.

What are the requirements?

  • Broadband internet connection
  • Microsoft Word or equivalent word processing software
  • PDF Reader (available for free from Adobe.com)
  • Access to social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Avoid common resume mistakes that could be disastrous
  • Learn the key elements to superior resumes for healthcare careers
  • Check your online presence before you submit your resume
  • Clearly define your employment goals
  • Understand how to maximize ATS systems
  • Dissect the anatomy of an attention-grabbing resume
  • Optimize location for placing contact information
  • Write a killer intro to make a lasting impression
  • Isolate the most important work experience that's relevant
  • Apply a minimalistic approach while remaining memorable
  • Express your foundational expertise
  • Illustrate your most important education, training, and competencies
  • Apply a professional final-touch
  • Write a decisive, stand-out cover letter
  • Strategize methods and locations for submitting your resume
  • Gain extra help from the instructor

Who is the target audience?

  • This course is meant for Clinical and Allied Health professionals with a wide range of experience from new grads to seasoned veterans who have either never had a formal resume-building course, or may simply need a refresher course on what Hiring Managers are looking for in today's Healthcare market..
  • You should take this course if you are searching for employment as a Registered Nurse, Licensed Vocational Nurse, Radiologic Technologist (including all modalities such as x-ray, CT, MRI, Nuclear Medicine, Ultrasound, and Mammography), Respiratory Therapist, Pharmacy, Lab, Medical Assistant, Certified Nursing Assistant, Technical Partner, etc.
  • Consider this course if you want more targeted instruction on how to build a resume from the point of view of a Healthcare Hiring Manager, rather than a Human Resources professional.
  • This course is NOT for job-seekers in careers outside of healthcare. My approach to resume building is intended to maximize pertinent information in one page (two maximum) so that Hiring Managers can quickly view a resume and obtain everything they need at a glance. This is NOT a good approach for all career destinations, and I purposefully exclude some attributes of resumes that may be distracting or unnecessary for this field.
  • This course is NOT intended for management-level job-seekers

Section 1: Introduction

Meet the instructor and learn a little bit about the author


This outline will delve deeper into the course goals and let you know more about what to expect


Learn what NOT to do - this session will teach you how to avoid some nasty, yet common mistakes. I have included multiple examples of bad resumes. The first resume was one I created myself to show some extreme examples, but each of the additional documents were actual resumes I've received for job applications (with identifying information removed of course). I've placed comments in the margins of each explaining what NOT to do.

Learn how and why you should be concerned about what Google says about you

(and what you should do about it)

Section 3: Write your Attention-Grabbing Resume
