Over the years of my professional career I have struggled with how to make my resume stand out in the crowd when I have zero connections with a potential employer. I have tried everything from using a professional design company to printing my resume on brightly colored paper. I once even developed a ‘Top Ten’ list as to why a potential employer should hire me. I now find myself on the other side of the interview process.
At Tiller-Hewitt HealthCare Strategies we see hundreds of resumes. We screen the new physician liaison applicants for our healthcare clients. While it is true that a professionally done resume grabs my attention, it is the substance of the resume that keeps my attention.
So what are Top Ten things that will automatically send your resume to the discard pile?
