Be sure your résumé makes an effective first impression.
Everyone wants to make a good first impression, and sometimes that requires a makeover. We often makeover our wardrobes for a job interview or first date. Think of your professional résumé as part of your wardrobe that makes a first impression on a potential employer. Whether you’re applying for an entry-level position as a nurse, making a mid-career change to nursing, or pursuing a lateral or horizontal move, your résumé is a critical means to the end you seek. It’s a concise one- or two-page snapshot of your life as a nurse that specifies the skills and experience you bring to a nursing position.
