As a substance abuse case manager, is an important job that is done by people with a high skill set. Your resume needs to reflect that you have the skills and that you are the best person for the job. Here is a sample that you can use to get ideas for your own resume.
When you are trying to get a professional job, you want your resume to look professional, too. Adding font colors to a resume does not help it stand out in a good way. For example, the font on the sample resume is mostly black. However, the title of the job that the person is applying for and the years of experience are both in blue. The company knows what job you are applying for, and they will read your resume and see how much experience you have. Highlighting those facts won’t be the only way you get noticed. Keep it professional, and keep the font black.
Keep Bulleted Lists Even
The bulleted lists under the skills section in this resume is great. The skills that were chosen are perfect for a resume. The only problem is that the lists slant to the left. Make sure you keep your bulleted lists even so your resume looks functional and professional. Wrong Skills
Formatting Work History
Adding substantial work history will strengthen your resume. However, you need to be careful not to add so much that it completely takes over your resume. Bulleted lists are effective for making information neat and organized, but when too many bullets are used, it loses its effectiveness. The sample resume has some amazing work history, but the amount of information makes it hard to read. Some of the information can be grouped together or just talked about during the interview. Also, make sure you add spaces between work history so there is a clear beginning and end to each one. Wrong Work History Substance Abuse Counselor/ Case Manager05/2007 to 11/2009 LESC New York
