Medical Resume Writing Don'ts

- Don't make a generic cover letter that is going to be viewed by twenty different organizations. You need to show that you actually care about the job you are applying for. This means that you need to learn everything you possibly can about the company and demonstrate that you have this information.

- Don't list experience that is older than five years. This is especially true if you are an older worker. If you have anything that goes back longer you will more than likely have a resume that takes just as long to read. Take this into account when you are preparing your resume, as it may be the key to getting that job.

- Don't use fonts that tend to stand out. Times New Roman is the best font to use on a resume. There are a few other fonts that you can use for your heading and your home address, but that being said, keep those fonts where they belong!

These are a few things that you will need to know about medical resume writing. As you can see, it is almost identical to writing any other resume! Just keep it brief, include the right information, and soon enough you'll be on your way to that dream job.
