Your resume is an important tool in the recruitment process. It is your chance to make a great first impression since it is the first thing the HealthStaff recruiting team will see. Your resume needs to be able to tell a short story about your career. Keep in mind that every culture is different when it comes to accepting resumes. Some countries would like to know more about your ethnicity, gender, family names and sometimes even your height. Here at HealthStaff we are only looking for four things.
Where you currently work and live is important to us. This is a key point in scheduling your interview. Make sure that it is clear on your resume. We suggest to list your current location under your name like this:
9101 Kings Parade Blvd
Charlotte, NC 28273
Most of our clients are looking to hire NCLEX passers; therefore, under a licensure title you should state all your licensures as well as the country or state that it is issued in like this:
NCLEX – Texas
DHA – Dubai Health Authority
HAAD – Health Authority Abu Dhabi
#3 Current Work Experience
Listing and describing your current job is extremely important when applying for a job in the USA. Most of our clients ask for two years of current experience. Therefore, as you are listing your current and previous jobs, make sure to provide a detailed description. Do not list Staff Nurse as a title. Instead, list the specific department in which you work.
Med Surg – ABC Hospital
8-21-2017 – Present
Works in an acute rehab hospital helping post stroke patients… etc.
