After you’ve received your nursing degree, your next challenge is to apply for and secure a position as a nurse. Before even meeting prospective employers, you have a chance to make a great first impression: through your resume. Your resume is a quick look into your skills, experiences, and professional achievements. A great resume can quickly open the door to an awesome career, but a flawed one can just as quickly close it. Here are some common pitfalls to avoid when writing your resume.
Typos and grammatical errors. Your resume needs to be grammatically perfect and free of typos. If your resume is filled with simple mistakes, it can be perceived as careless. This is an easy way to be dismissed, in spite of your accomplishments and attributes. Attention to detail is an important skill for any nursing position. Practice this skill while you are preparing your resume. You may also want to have someone review your resume before submitting to potential employers.
Contact information etiquette. If you have an email address that may be considered inappropriate, it is a good idea to create a new one. You may want to consider a free email address such as Gmail for your job hunting needs. A professional looking email will bode well for your search. In addition to your email presentation, you will also want to be sure your voicemail greeting is clear and appropriate. Having a polished and professional presentation in all aspects of the job application process can assist in landing that dream job.
Too much personal information. Listing multiple phone numbers can lead you to missing important messages from prospective employers. Keep in mind there are most likely other candidates applying for the same position as you, make sure to be prompt in your response when contacted. Having one phone number and email address listed will assist in keeping track of correspondence with potential employers.
Common resume template. While using a resume template may seem convenient, when potential employers are sifting through applicants, your resume will not stand out when others have used the same form. Look at the attributes they are looking for in the job posting and incorporate those in your submission. Resumes that turn into jobs are usually customized for the position.
Formatting errors. In addition to proofreading, you should pay attention to formatting as well. Instead of using paragraphs, bullet points allow your resume be reviewed quickly. When listing work history, list the name of the employer, your previous job title, and the dates you were employed. This format should be used for your education as well.
Generic and Cliché descriptions. Are you a dynamic team-player that thinks outside the box with your excellent results-oriented communication skills? So is every other potential employee. Provide examples of your abilities and accomplishments by using statistics and action verbs (e.g., attained, coordinated, improved, instituted, adapted,) and superlatives (e.g., first, best, only, top).Through these details, you will show how you will add value to their organization.
Unprofessional Presentation. It is true that your resume may stand out if it has a bright colored font on expensive paper, but it may not stand out in a positive way. In order for your resume to stand out, you should highlight your unique qualifications, not your choice in glitter font. Your resume is a representation of your professional qualities. Using the correct font and color selections is just as important as format and content.
Remember, your resume is the first impression to your future employer… make it a good one!
