CNA Sample Resume Explanations and Instructions
1. This resume has taken the middle of the road approach. In the first sample resume, the new person skipped the professional summary due to the lack of background. However, this person used it and created a good introduction. This is usually performed by someone with lots of experience, but this still works well.
2. Should state where they are licensed.
3. This section is well written, if this is for a nursing home. You can tell that each one of the qualities presented is geared towards a position in that field. This is why it is important to write your resume in a way that is specific to the job yourself. If this resume were to go to a basic clinic, then you could see how this wouldn’t work.
4. They should explain the “30 pounds” because is some ways, 30 pounds isn’t much. Is this is a dead lift? What type of lift do they mean?
5. I wouldn’t recommend writing “Intern as CNA.” Although you may be an intern, you can write “performed all duties as a CNA while under supervision.” Or you can write this section in a way that is tailored to the job description.
6. This is a nice personal touch, however, it would be better if the personal touch had something to do with the job. If you do something like this, be prepared to talk about it in the interview.
