Healthcare Resume Tips

Given the scientific background of many health care jobs, writing a resume for these positions can be more difficult than for others. One reason that causes this problem is the fact that there are two formats which can be followed.

The typical resume is often used for healthcare jobs that have more of an office background such as those that purely distractive. In these circumstances it is best to list one’s experience in reversed chronological order. This gives the hiring manager the ability to see advancements and salary increases most easily. If one plans to apply online for a this sort of healthcare job it is important to remember than most application tracking software uses filters that sometimes accidentally remove the information of even qualified candidates.

Because of this it is important to make sure that keywords are present. One way to make sure that a resume is not unrightfully discarded is to mimic the job description to some degree. For example; if the announcement asked for four years experience in a medical office background and the applicant possesses this, then it is important to list this qualification in the same words.

The other format of resume used to apply for healthcare jobs is called the Curriculum Vitae, which is Latin for “course of one’s life.” This is mostly used by individuals who are in the medical, academic, and scientific fields. Where as a typical resume may boost one’s achievements, the Curriculum Vitae is slightly more discreet. Since in this form of an application for healthcare jobs requires the writer to list all their credentials, it can be any number of pages in length. Typical topics included in the Curriculum Vitae include professional experience, education, internships, awards, information on publications, conferences, professional affiliations, and speaking engagements.

One particular bit of information that one should not forget to include in a resume for healthcare jobs is any experience in fundraising. Since hospitals and other medical facilities often work to gain sponsorship and federal grants, this type of know-how will make an applicant stand out in the eyes of any hiring manager.
