Your resume is your own personal advertisement, or marketing tool, and like any advertisement its purpose it to
get a person’s (the nurse recruiter’s) attention. Recruiters get volumes of resumes and going through them can be
tedious. They don’t have time to read every word the first time. They initially scan through them find what appear
to be the top candidates and those resumes get set aside for the “short list”; the others get tossed out. How do you
make it into the “short list”?
Have your resume hand delivered or emailed to the recruiter by an inside employee; a unit manager if
possible. Personally recommended candidates always make the short list.
If you don’t know anyone on the inside, then make sure your resume jumps out at the recruiter. What extra
skills do you bring or, what makes you unique? The above resume has a type of ‘heading’ area. Bachelor of
Science, high GPA, bilingual, and prior healthcare experience are highly desirable candidate features. They
are listed at the top, front, center and bold. The recruiter is going to appreciate you making their job easier,
demonstrating you are an excellent communicator, making a positive first impression for your name.
Recruiters will search resume databases using “key words” to find the types of candidates they are looking
for. Make sure your resume is full of keywords. How do you know what the recruiter is looking for? That
depends on the recruiter. A good place to look for “key words” is in new grad job descriptions.
Hospitals are hiring new grads to specialties. If you have a genuine interest for Telemetry or Oncology,
work it into your resume and / or cover letter. Create a resume for each of your interests and insert
specialty relevant “key words”. If your specialty interest match the departments looking for nurses you
could find yourself on the hiring short list.
Thoughtfully crafted resumes can get to the short list by being rich with “key words” pertinent to the area you are
applying for, capture the reader's attention, stir desire, and generate action -- an interview!
