Carmen's resume Case Study

Health Care Specialist & Full-Time Mother

In a nutshell

Bad at bragging, needed industry-specific resume

The challenge

Carmen has a great story: she worked her way from a cashier to a store manager to a licensed practical nurse. She recently took a break from her career to be with her family and has had a difficult time working this into her resume.

She was very humble and timid in her applications and needed a spark to get employers' attention.

How Sue, a TopResume writer, helped Carmen

After talking with her on the phone, I'd hire her in a heartbeat! The bottom line is she's a great, but humble, health care worker that needed to brag more. There's a shortage of nursing professionals and she's qualified, so I stacked the front of her resume with a rich intro and summary of credentials. It's plain on purpose -- to read more powerfully -- and it still fits on one page.

Also, the health industry is huge and relies more on Application Tracking Systems than others, so getting the right keywords into the resume was important to get her interviews. We took her resume and fed it into 60 different job boards with our resume promotion service. We just needed to get her in the door so that she could tell her story in person!

In her own words

My resume turned out to have exactly what I thought it needed to boost me to the next level of my career path and I want to thank you, Sue very much for your services. It was well worth it.

Excellent service. My writer was able to take a jumbled mess that eventually became 6 un-edited pages of job duties and responsibilities and turned it into a two-page concise document that represents me in a professional manner.
