Hints for Obtaining Your Perfect Job
► Your resume should be typed and error free.
► Include your name, address, phone numbers and email address.
► Do not list your contact information as a header – include this as part of the body of your resume.
► Ensure that your objective matches the position that you are applying for.
► List all of your experience – be specific. What units did you work in, what type of tests/exams have you conducted, what types of patients have you cared for, what special skills have you utilized, etc.
► Include a listing of licenses and certifications on your resume.
► When called for an interview, remember to make a note of the person’s name you will be meeting with.
► Arrive early for the interview. If you will be late, call with an estimated time of arrival.
► Bring extra copies of your resume with you so you can distribute to everyone that interviews you.
► Turn off your cell phone and pagers before you arrive for the interview.
► First impressions count. Present yourself in a professional manner (dress, speech and the manner in which you interact with others).
► Be prepared to ask questions. A successful hire is great for both the employer as well as the employee. Determine what is important to you in a job and ask questions to determine if the employer will offer those items that will make you a happy employee.
► Communicate during the interview what your experiences have been, why you are interested in the job you are applying for and what skills you would bring with you.
