Why Do You Need a Custom Resume Template? Your resume is the very first step in getting a job. When you begin searching for a job, you’ll ultimately be uploading or submitting resumes to various employers. If you turn in a poorly constructed resume—it could get tossed in the trash. You want a resume that will stand out and grab the hiring manager’s attention. That’s why I contracted a graphic designer to create 10 professionally designed resumes—all with nursing/healthcare themes. These resumes include all of the major sections. All you have to do is fill in your own information. They are completely customizable, and you can edit the text, add sections, or change them any way you want. You also get the 10 beautifully designed cover letters that match the resumes. You also receive a resignation template—for occasions when you need to leave your current job for a better opportunity. One resume template alone would be worth the price. However, you’re going to receive all 10 professionally designed resume covers, along with cover letters and this short job guide.
About the Book This book was designed to give you the information you need to strategically find a job. You’ll get information on compiling your resume, tips on how and where to submit your resume, tips when sitting for an interview, tips on leaving your old job, and tips on advancing your career. This is not just a book—this is a job tune-up. The guide is short and to the point, and focuses on the information you need to start finding a job immediately. The author, S.L. Page, shares her insights into getting a job. She combines her personal experiences along with the advice of nurse managers she’s spoken with through the years.
