This video clip focuses on the Experience section of a resume. More often than not, your resume will initially be screened by an Administrative person. Always be polite, use appropriate industry terms when describing your experience and don’t assume that everyone knows what you do in any given position. Be sure to highlight your strengths and outline the equipment, techniques, diagnostic systems or programs that you have used.
Clearly indicate where and when you have worked in the different positions and expand on previous positions that are directly related to the position you are applying for. If you are applying for a position in an industry where you don’t have any experience, outline the transferable skills.
