Make sure your osteopathic medicine resume is the best that it can be. You have a lot of competition out there, and you don’t want to lose out on the job of your dreams because your resume wasn’t up to par. Here is a sample resume that you can use as a reference for yours and some tips on how to make it even better.
Make Your Professional Summary Shine
Your professional summary needs to speak to your potential employers. It needs to tell them what you do, how long you have been doing it for, and why you are the right fit for the job. It will beckon them to keep reading your resume instead of throwing it into the discard pile. Your summary, or any part of your resume for that matter, should never use first person pronouns. It should be writing with action verbs in place of pronouns to make it strong. Your employers don’t want to feel like they are reading a biography. The sample resume doesn’t list the years of experience and it is written it first person. Here is how it could be stronger made stronger. Wrong Professional Summary Dedicated, hardworking, honest individual interested in becoming a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine.I have experience working in the Lab, I conducted many chemical experiments as well as biological ones. I assure you with the experience I acquire I would be an asset to your Lab. Right Professional Summary Dedicated and hardworking osteopathic medicine doctor with 17 years of experience. Has extensive experience working in the lab. Has conducted many chemical experiments as well as biological ones. Has a passion for osteopathic medicine. A critical thinker with a love for helping others. Of course, you will write your professional summary in accordance to your own experience and skills, but sticking to this format makes it much stronger and more desirable for potential employers.
Don’t Have Unnecessary Sections
The accomplishments section works for people who have had major accomplishments in their career. It isn’t necessary to use it for classes that you have taken in school. In the sample resume, classes from school should be listed under the education section. After the skills section, move onto professional experience unless you have licenses, certifications or awards that you want listed. Here is how the information should look on the resume. Wrong Accomplishments Course of study acquired that will help with this Research Position: Research methods: This course highlighted the different types of methods that one can conduct research with for example: Correlational Research, Experimental Research, Descriptive Research and etc. General Biology I & II with corresponding Lab Classes General Chemistry I & II with corresponding Lab Classes Organic Chemistry I & II with corresponding Lab Classes Physics I & II with corresponding Lab Classes Right Education and Training Bachelor of Arts : Psychology With Pre-Med, Dec 13 Florida International University
Properly Format Experience
Your experience section needs to be listed in order from your current or most recent job and working backward. The experience section in this sample resume is confusing. It starts in 2010, goes back to 1998, and then forward to the current job. It is completely random and it looks bad on the resume. In this sample, it’s confusing because volunteer work is listed. Put your volunteer work in a section separate from your paid employment. Volunteer work impresses employers and it should stand out. It’s best to list it first with your paid employment section after. This resume has great information, it just needs to be presented in a different way.
