If you’re looking for a new physician job, having a good CV is essential. Not only should it show to the recruiter you’re qualified for the position, it should also let them know how you’ll be a good fit for the facility and the community.
Recruiters spend an average of just 7 seconds to review each resume they receive. Being concise and accurate with your CV is essential.
So, how do you stand out? A place to start is avoiding some CV red flags.
Here are a few to avoid:
Red Flag #1:
Gaps in employment of six months or more.
Provide an explanation for the gap.
Red Flag #2:
Employed at multiple facilities over a short period of time.
Provide reasoning behind the changes in your cover letter.
Red Flag #3:
Applying for a role that doesn’t fit your background.
Explain the jump and why you’re still a good option for the position.
Red Flag #4:
Lay the claims out in the cover letter and not the CV.
Red flags aren’t the only thing to be aware of when writing a CV that pops. You also need to know what recruiters are looking for, what you should include in your CV, and how you should format it.
