How to Make Your Resume Stand Out and Have the Perfect Interview as a Unit Secretary (Video)

In this video, I talk about how to make your resume stand out and how to have a great interview. 

The Resume:
  • If you have work experience that varies from field to field, then create two separate resumes. I have a professional resume that lists my medical experience and a retail resume that lists the jobs when I worked at Eckerd’s, BP Gas Station, Winn-Dixie and many, many more.
  • Any job that you’ve worked less than six months, should not be included, unless, it’s relevant to the job that you are applying for.
  • Your resume should not include any job that is over 10 years unless it is relevant for the job that you are applying for.
  • List your accomplishments on your resume. Were you on a committee at a previous job? List it. Did you train new employees? List that too.
  • List all software that you know how to use. Microsoft Excel? Salesforce? You know the drill. Put it on there.

The Interview:
  • If called for an interview, do not schedule it for the next day. Give yourself two days or more to get yourself together. Get your hair done/haircut. Get new shoes/purse/accessories. Make sure you have copies of your resumes printed. You need to be dressed for business.  
  • Be prepared to take a typing test.
  • If you are still employed somewhere else and they ask you why you want to leave you can say something along the lines of “I would like a change of scenery” or “I would like a new challenge”.
  • Do not go in there desperate or too eager. Instead, you need to be confident.
