3 Résumé Tips that You Can Take or Leave

Posted on | Posted By | 0 Comments

Concluding our look at writing an effective résumé, Nicole Fallon, assistant editor over at Business News Daily, offers three of her most intriguing tips yet, tips that you can take or leave:

1. List Your Low-Level Jobs

Author Cody Teets, who wrote the intriguingly titled “Golden Opportunity: Remarkable Careers that Began at McDonald’s,” told Fallon, “Even if you think that some of your past jobs are trivial…they may still help you get a job… [E]mployers know that working at a fast-food restaurant isn’t easy, and it can help a job seeker’s résumé stand out.”

By way of example, Teets explained that McDonald’s is a job in which “workers learn to operate as part of a team, to challenge themselves, and to roll with the punches, all skills that will come in handy at any job.”

As physicians and advanced practitioners who are looking for jobs, what do you think of this tip? Is it important to include on your résumé the lower-level jobs you had while you were working on achieving your current career?

2. Add in Relevant Awards or Recognition

Yes, in case you were wondering, you should brag about recognitions you have received, Fallon writes. These are accomplishments that an employer should know about.

According to one expert, the awards you’ve won can show an employer that you are “uncommonly talented or driven… High-performing companies are always looking for an edge in the marketplace, and having a team of competitive and passionate employees on board can provide a significant advantage.”

3. Say It in a Video

Here’s another tip that could only be given in the second decade of the 21st century. According to Fallon, “Don't be afraid to ditch the traditional résumé and try something different, one expert says. One option growing in popularity among job seekers is a video résumé.”

Josh Tolan, who is CEO of Spark Hire, a video interviewing solutions provider, said, “Including a link to a video résumé is a great way to set yourself apart from the crowd and impress hiring managers. On video, job candidates can show off their personality, communication skills, and ambition. It can help hiring managers get a better insight into the candidate and will allow them to envision how the candidate would fit into the company culture. Employers want to see job candidates who are confident and able to come up with creative solutions to common problems, and video résumés are a great way to demonstrate just those qualities.”

This concludes our look at 10 interviewing tips that make for an effective résumé. Which tips stood out to you the most and will help you in the future with your résumé? Which tips did you think were flat-out wrong or useless? For you, what elements make for an effective résumé?
