From the forums:
Look at your RESUME!!!
I've been reviewing resumes for open positions in my department and can't
believe the resumes I've received: misspelling, words crossed off, no
cover letter, including personal information about family life. Please
don't send a resume if you have NONE of the job qualifications, unless
your cover letter has explanation eg enrolled in education program etc.
I was taught in LPN and BSN program how to prepare a resume. Is this a
lost art being skipped??
Also agree with our bb members that calling facility and finding out who
is department manager, then forwarding your resume to them along with HR
is great idea.
I work in smaller organization than hospital but has taken me over two
months to get open positions advertised and three weeks to get resume's
sent to me...those that sent to me directly have interview same week.
