RESUMES; THE BACKBONE TO YOUR JOB
- Limit your resume to one or two pages.
- Keep descriptions brief and clear.
- Avoid over-the-top statements such as “excelled at surgery, successfully accomplished x, y, and z.”
- Avoid overuse of bullet points (for example, don’t list every activity you performed in a position, highlighting it with a bullet point; this can appear to be a padding technique).
- Be honest.
- Be clear.
- You want your resume to clarify who you are, your strengths, and your interests.
- List pre-veterinary jobs and activities, non-veterinary jobs, activities, and hobbies unless they are absolutely germane to the job you are seeking.
- Only highlight information that targets the position you are seeking; if you have large animal experience but are applying for a small animal position, focus on your SA strengths and experiences.
