Travel Nursing: Creating a Better Resume

When your resume and job application are in front of a hiring manager, you may only have seconds to make an impression. This short amount of time will determine if you’re invited to an interview or put in the “do not call” pile. For this reason, it’s important to make a good first impression.

Before contacting a healthcare staffing agency, make sure to update your resume. Include all professional certifications and put your most impressive accomplishments in the first ¼ of the resume. Often a recruiter will decide within seconds if you’re a good fit for a potential employer.

Partner with a staffing firm that specializes in healthcare placements. Choosing a company that specializes in healthcare jobs will make it easier to find potential employers. Companies like Clinical One already have relationships established with healthcare facilities allowing you access to jobs that might not be available on mainstream job boards. Visit to complete the application, upload your resume, and search open jobs.
