Before reviewing the sample below, it’s important to understand some of the unique aspects of travel nursing resumes. First, there is no need to be concerned about the length of your travel nursing resume. The number of pages does not matter. Instead, it’s important to include all of the details required by hiring managers and agencies.
Second, there is no need to be concerned about how “busy” your resume looks. Hiring managers and agencies require a lot of details about every job you’ve held. There is no way to present all of the information they require without the resume looking “busy”.
In fact, hiring managers and agencies actually expect to see long, busy resumes. This is because the Applicant Tracking Systems used by agencies actually generate long, busy resumes. You see, when you complete an agency’s online application, the information you enter is used by the Applicant Tracking System to create a resume that gets sent to the hiring manager for any job you’re submitted for.
The BluePipes resume is actually modeled after the resumes created by the industry’s most popular Applicant Tracking Systems. The goal is to ensure you fill out less paperwork by helping you recognize and record all the little required details.
