As an esthetician you must utilize a number of different skills other than applying beauty products. Though there are several different ways to set up your resume, there are certain things that can help to make your resume stick out from amongst the crowd. Consider these tips from experts in regards to this licensed esthetician resume sample, to ensure that you do not get caught in the same pitfalls.
Use a Summary versus an Objective
In years past, having an objective statement at the beginning of your resume was standard. However, over the last few years that has shifted to a career summary. Simply stated, employers are more enticed by learning what you can bring to the company rather than what you desire to gain from the company. Your summary should outline your key experience, characteristics and accomplishments that you would be able to contribute to the company.

I’m a licensed Esthetician who employs strong business, sales and customer service skills to meet spa goals and exceed client expectations. RIGHT: Licensed and experienced esthetician with strong sales and customer service skills. Possessing training in various beauty modalities and excellent business capabilities. Able to cultivate and nurture healthy business relationships between clients and vendors. Seeking to advance into a managerial role to utilize and further hone key skills from within a thriving company.
Properly Format Your Bullets
Bullets are essential within a resume. They help to organize information and draw the attention. In order for them to be most effective, they must be allocated properly. In each section, you should try to keep the number of bullets somewhat consistent and uniform. For instance, in the Highlight section it is advised that two or three columns be used, and that each column have between three and five bullets, equally. Also, in the Experience section you should try to keep the bullets within a common range and use the same bullet type. WRONG: 1. Communicates, answers questions, and resolves problems with insureds, claimants, producers, and others by telephone, by mail, and in person. 2. Documents all claims work in the appropriate systems 3. Take first notice of loss statements RIGHT:
Focus on Relevant Information
Chances are that a hiring manager will not review every piece of information on your resume. Therefore, it is important that you make your most relevant and impressive skills and characteristics visible in the beginning. So sections such as Additional Information as shown in the sample resume should be at the end of the resume, and relevant experience to the position should be expelled upon in the Experience section. Especially in the Experience section, the information behind the bullets is critical. You should keep information short and sweet. If you have work experience that is outside of the current field that you are pursuing, you must make sure to clearly state the characteristics and traits that you have gained through your experience that relate to the position. Inserting key words at the beginning of the bullets will assist in such endeavors. If the unrelated experience is over ten years old, you may consider leaving it off the resume all together. Utilizing these tips can help to get you on the right track to creating a great resume.
