Healthcare Executives Can Freshen Their Resumes in 2017 with Three Tips from Jessica Holbrook Hernandez

Healthcare companies are trying to meet talent shortages and find new ways to discover qualified candidates. But they will rapidly reject an outdated healthcare executive resume.

“If you’re a healthcare executive open to new opportunities this year you’re probably taking a good look at your executive resume and wondering if it’s as ready as you are for a new job search. I’ve heard from countless job seekers in the past two months who are concerned their executive resumes aren’t up to the challenge. They are afraid that their resumes haven’t been updated recently, aren’t positioned correctly, or don’t get responses,” said Jessica Holbrook Hernandez, an award-winning executive resume writer and president of Great Resumes Fast, based in suburban Jacksonville.

If you’re a C-Suite healthcare executive who is having a hard time writing your executive resume or simply are not feeling confident about the current condition of your resume, here are three quick tips that you can use right now to freshen it so that it’s ready for the 2017 job market.

Culture Fit Is Important
Healthcare recruiters say that culture fit is a top factor in their hiring decision. You don’t hear much about culture fit when it comes to healthcare resumes, but it is the first place to start addressing culture fit. Start by researching the company culture of the healthcare organizations that you want to lead. Network with colleagues to discuss the beliefs and values that drive their company and if these align with yours, be sure to include that information within your healthcare resume.

Remove Useless Words
Meaningless words that take up space and add no value to your healthcare executive resume do not support your personal brand. These words include; results, success, professional, accomplished. These words are not inherently bad—it’s just that they will not tell the board of directors how the value you create offsets the cost of having you on board. Instead, replace these generic phrases with specific terms.

Instead of saying you are results-driven share how you drove physician engagement to 97% to rank as a “Best Place to Practice Medicine”.

Replace the generic term success with the actual successes you’ve had; for example: Oversaw $32M in capital expansions. Launched Texas Neurosurgical Specialists for exclusive ER coverage and loyalist referral alignment.

The word professional can be switched with the actual position title that you’re pursuing. Instead of saying sales professional, say President and CEO.

Accomplished is an overused phrase that’s hard to quantify. So instead of saying you’re accomplished, share the accomplishments with metrics. For example: Elevated Texas Medical Center to level-3 trauma accreditation. Grew billable trauma activation >120% within 2 years.

Renovate Your Resume
If you haven’t modernized your resume in the last two years it’s time for an overhaul. We’re a visually mediated society - just Google some basic information about the performance statistics around videos, visuals, and infographics over plain text. Content-heavy resumes that lack visually engaging elements, design, and color are outdated. It’s time to revamp the design of it to include charts, graphs, visuals, color, boxes, shading, borders, and other visual design elements that will engage the reader and make content easily digestible and quicker to consume. If you’re getting an average of only six seconds for an initial scan, use visuals to communicate large chunks of information more quickly. For examples of visuals in C-level healthcare executive resumes here are several resume samples that include color, borders, shading and graphs.

If you’re not confident in your current healthcare resume, take time to make changes in these three key areas. If you’re still struggling, need help, or are in a time crunch you can get more help here.
