Do you have finding a new job on your list of New Year’s resolutions? Runnymede Healthcare Centre believes outstanding care begins with outstanding people and we are always on the lookout for new team members. Check out our latest employment opportunities online.
Ready to apply? Follow these easy tips to get your resumé to the top of the pile:
Check the application deadline and give yourself plenty of time to get your resumé in order. Disaster might strike at anytime – corrupt file, computer crash, etc. – and if you leave your submission to the last minute, you run the risk of missing the deadline and not being considered for the job.
Show us how you’d shine in the role
Tailor your resumé to include information about how your past work experience relates to the job you are applying for. Show us how your prior roles have prepared you to work at Runnymede.
Make it easy to skim
Break out long chunks of information into separate sections with specific headings to make your relevant experience stand out. Use action words to focus on things you’ve accomplished and try to keep your resumé as concise as possible.
A resumé is a business document, so keep it professional. Avoid unnecessary embellishments such as flashy paper. Proofread carefully to eliminate distracting typos. Don’t rely only on spell check, which doesn’t catch all grammatical errors.
Honesty is the best policy
Don’t lie about past experience. We want to meet the real you.
