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.

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
