The Right Curriculum Vitae for Successful Doctors Job Placement


Overview: On average, individual curriculum vitae submissions get a review from recruiters lasting thirty seconds or less. CompHealth can help you get the most out of such a short time with a free e-book that shows you how to get your CV successfully through the review process when you are trying for one of those doctors jobs.

Becoming a physician is a long and hard process. MCAT scores play a big role in getting into medical school. Then itís on to years of study which lead up to board exams and resident training. When itís time to start looking for one of these excellent Doctors jobs, your curriculum vitae is the first step in landing interviews. Therefore, it needs to be effective.

Your CV is your opportunity to make a good first impression. Unfortunately, most people donít realize that first impression is being made to a machine. Thatís because an electronic screening process is used by recruiters to weed out undesirable applicants through a system of comparative key word analysis. CV information thatís not presented well could eliminate you undeservedly from your efforts in securing one of the Doctors jobs.

Knowing how to structure your curriculum vitae is an important element in landing interviews for locum tenens or permanent positions. Here are three tips from CompHealthís free e-book on this subject:

Make Your CV a Quick Read
Polonius said that brevity is the soul of whit; itís also the soul of CVs. List your education, certification, and work history, complete with dates and locations, as concisely as possible. Make it easy to read.
Tip: All information about dates should be thorough and comprehensive, and formatted as month/year.

Make Your CV Fit
A recruiter will review your CV if it passes the initial electronic screening. The recruiter will be looking for work history similar to the position applied for, as well as familiarity with electronic record keeping systems.
Tip: You can only make your CV fit a prospective employer if you take the time to research them before hand. Find out what they are looking for so your information can be tailored to their needs.

Make Your CV Free of Unexplained Gaps
Despite the different licensing and certification requirements that exist throughout the country, one thing all recruitment offices have in common is a dislike of unexplained gaps in work history.
Tip: Keep current records of all gaps, with complete explanations, and submit such records with every CV. They should be clear enough to answer any potential questions.
