Liberty University Career Center Resume Services

My exhortation to participate in a nursing externship would be only partly helpful if I did not also tell you about the tools at your disposal to aid you in your efforts to secure your dream summer job.

In today's world, numerous resumes come across a manager's desk and only a couple of the applicants are selected for the limited number of positions available. That being the case, it is imperative that you make an exceptional first impression by putting together a resume that is clearly laid out and succinct while displaying the great individual that you are. I do not claim to be an expert in the art of resume building, but Liberty University's Career Center offers many resources that will aid you in your efforts to write an outstanding resume and cover letter.

One resource that I have found particularly helpful is their sample resume for nurses. Another is their resume critique option. There tends to be a bit of a time lag between submission and the feedback you receive from the Career Center, so be sure to submit your resume for critiquing well in advance so that you do not miss any important deadlines. I have also learned from my nursing friends that the Career Center also offers opportunities to meet with their staff. To set up an appointment, you can follow this link to the appointment request form. Happy resume writing!
