If you are applying to be a medical receptionist, should use a sample resume so you can make sure you include all the best information. This sample, along with this advice, will ensure that you have a resume that will stand out from the stack.
A strong introduction is what will sell your resume to your employers. You cant save all of the good stuff until the end, because the employers might not even read that far. If you dont wow your potential employers with a strong professional summary, you could be ruining your chances at a job that you want. The professional summary in this sample is nearly perfect. There are no first person pronouns and its short and to the point, just as it should be. The only thing that would make it better would be adding the years of experience after the title. Here is an example. Wrong PROFESSIONAL SUMMARY Patient-focused front office professional with strong attention to detail and the ability to multi-task. Customer service excellence and extensive knowledge of all phases of front office management; including medical billing and coding. Right PROFESSIONAL SUMMARY Patient-focused front office professional with 21 years of experience. Has a strong attention to detail and the ability to multi-task. Customer service excellence and extensive knowledge of all phases of front office management; including medical billing and coding. Mentioning your experience immediately gives your professional summary the added punch that every resume needs, especially if you have a lot of experience.
Everything except the professional summary should be done with bullet lists. This sample resume has bullet lists for almost all of the sections, but they should be done with the rest of the sections as well. The professional experience section is too wordy. Complete sentences arent always necessary on a resume. Its better to have short and crisp wording or the bullet points arent as useful as they could be. Here is an example that shows how the bullet points can be used properly. Under licenses, make sure all of the licenses and certificates are used in a bullet list. Wrong LICENSES Certificates for successful completion of Medical Transcription I & II, Medical Terminology, Medical Billing & Coding. Also Advanced Completer Certificate for Business and Clerical Administration from IndyPendence Career Development Center & Vincennes University. Right CERTIFICATES
This allows your potential employers to glance at your resume and know that those are certificates that you hold and what they are. Here is an example of how you can write your professional experience without allowing it to be too wordy. Wrong PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE Medical Receptionist II, 05/1995 to 06/2009 Clarian Health Partners/Methodist Medical Group ? Indianapolis, IN
Right PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE Medical Receptionist II, 05/1995 to 06/2009 Clarian Health Partners/Methodist Medical Group ? Indianapolis, IN
The same thing should be done under the education and training section.

All of the applicants are applying because they are certified at the same job as you, you need to let the employers know that you can handle working with other members of the clinic or hospital and go above and beyond.
