Having recently completed a Graduate Development Program, the client was seeking a resume that aligned to her practice as her previous document was used to apply for transition to professional practice programs. Now 12 months old, the previous document provided a starting point but was largely outdated.
The consultation was used to establish those key clinical interest areas as well as build a profile of the skills and knowledge developed during graduate program rotations. With a focus on both skills and achievements, it was agreed that the resume would be largely focused on the program, which would be broken down into rotations to allow greater depth of information.
The final product was a 3 page document which demonstrated a developing practice, tenacity supported by professionalism and a passion for high-quality care. The National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards were integrated throughout both the resume and cover letter, demonstrated an understanding and commitment to this vital quality improvement initiative.
