Struggling with your dental resume? Read through our 3 tips to improve your writing skills and make sure to download our FREE Jobseeker Toolkit to find the job you love!

Tip 1 – Do Research

Before starting to write your resume, check the job requirements. It would be better if you can check the requirements set by several dental clinics (5-10) to understand which skills and knowledge those organizations appreciate. Check the requirements of both large and small organizations to capture differences between their requirements. As a rule, dental specialists employed in small clinics fulfill more functions, while large organizations narrow down multiple functions to one or two.

Fill in your skills, and fields of expertise into respective sections based on the research results. You should mind the differences in skills required: if you’re applying for a position of a dental assistant you will need other skills if compared to the skills needed for a position of a dental hygienist.

Tip 2 –Structure It Clearly

The clear structure of the professional resume will help potential employers evaluate your skills and abilities easily. Do not forget to design your resume in a readable manner. In this way, you will help save employers’ time. They will show their appreciation by offering you a good position in a dental clinic when you present your skills concisely. As a rule, a resume contains the following sections: contact information, education, skills, and qualifications as well as additional soft skills. You should show the expertise you acquired when approaching career heights. Also, specify specific areas of expertise if relevant.

Tip 3 – Check Other Resumes

Check other samples online or apply for a medical CV writing service. Gather the information regarding dental medicine area functions and mind writing style. You can derive useful ideas from the best CV available online. If you still hesitate you can handle your resume, there is always an opportunity of applying for a professional writing service. A great number of writing companies are available online, but make a wise choice as some of these companies are fakes. The most important that your CV is capable of reflecting your professionalism in dental medicine, vast experience, excellent interpersonal skills, and dedication.
