Your resume is often a first impression of you professionally, which is why it is very important that it is current, complete and accurate. Be sure to also proof it for grammar, punctuation, spelling and consistency before you submit it to a doctor’s or dentist’s office for their consideration.
Basic guidelines to remember when doing your resume are:
1. Include your name, address, phone number and email.
2. Make sure your objective is relevant to the position you are applying for.
3. Have a “Special Abilities or Skills” section after the objective to showcase your computer and software skills, your
language skills and any other special career related skills you may have.
4. Start with your present and/or most recent position first, with your title, work dates and job duties, listing your most
important responsibilities first. Your job history does not need to show more than the last ten years unless it is still
relevant to your current career.
5. Include any volunteer work experience you may have as it shows you are a well rounded person.
6. List your education with the most recent first.
7. Professional references should be typed up separately to only give to offices with the particular jobs you are interested in.
