Resume Tips for Animal Health and Veterinary Professionals
If you are an Animal Health professional or a veterinarian in need of a resume then you have come to the right place.
We invite you to take advantage of the resume templates available to you on this page.
We also invite you to watch the webinar that our founder and CEO, Stacy Pursell did with Vicki Hidde of the Resume Source which can be found here on The VET Recruiter website: https://thevetrecruiter.com/webinars/ (scroll down the page to “Your Resume is Your Ticket to Landing Interviews”.)
Here are some of our recommendations for your resume:
- We recommend doing your resume in MS Word format.
- List your contact information including your email address and mobile phone number.
- List your city and state. We don’t necessarily need your street address but we want to know what city and state you reside within.
- We recommend an Executive Summary or Professional Summary under your contact information highlighting who you are as a professional.
- We recommend listing your work experience in reverse chronological order with your current or most recent position at the top.
- We recommend including your education after your work experience.
- We recommend your resume to be no more than two pages. Two pages is the ideal length. Unless you are applying for a position in academia or in R&D then we recommend a resume not a CV.
- Don’t put personal information on your resume such as marriage, children, birthdate or social security number.
- If you haven’t already read this then we recommend you read this page on The VET Recruiter website: https://thevetrecruiter.com/resumes/
