How can I tailor my resume to get my ideal job?
When you know what you want in a physician job, it's important to make sure your resume reflects your interests and skills. This will help you find the physician job opportunities that provide the career satisfaction you are seeking.
Before handing over your resume to physician staffing agencies, follow this checklist to make sure you have everything right:
- Spelling: Even spell check doesn't catch everything. Read your resume carefully for spelling errors, and then ask a friend to read it.
- Punctuation: Make sure every full sentence ends with a period. Be consistent in how you use punctuation (e.g. When separating job title from date, don't use commas for some positions and semicolons for others).
- Grammar: Keep your resume in the same tense. It's OK to list duties you perform in your current job in the present tense, but duties in past jobs should all be listed in the past tense.
- Content: You know what you want in a job, so describe the duties you performed in past or present jobs that would be valuable in the position you are seeking.
