By On May 08, 2018 Resume Format
In our culture people read from the top down and from left to right. So because the purpose of your resume is to be read, always keep this fact in mind as you write. For example, do not utilize valuable left margin space for dates, move dates to the right margin and use the left for information which will enhance your candidacy. Follow this theme throughout. Start by presenting the area which demonstrates your strongest qualifications. If your strength is your experience, or education or credentials or even volunteer experience; whatever, lead with it and proceed with the top to bottom concept. If your job title is more impressive than the company, list it first. Similarly, if your college is more impressive than the degree, then list it first.
Center your name and contact information at the top of the pageand include any credentials or degrees you may possess. For some reason, which I do not understand, the majority of resumes make you search throughout to determine education and credentials i.e. Perry E. Ellie, MA, RHIA, Fellow AHIMA. Why conceal this information? If you have these types of credentials, use them. If you don’t, or if they are less than ideal for the position you are applying, leave this information for your education section later in the resume. For the vast majority of candidates it is preferable to list your education and credentials up front. Utilize Word to highlight or draw attention to this and other key information in a way to match your own personal style.
Does your resume work for you? The bottom line is that you must look good on paper, if you want to interview for the job. As the owner of a health care recruiting firm specializing in Health Information Management, I critique thousands of resumes per year. By employing the common sense concepts in this article you can enhance your resume, find the work of your dreams and change your life.
