It is a good idea to go through some effective resume samples before you build your own. This practice equips candidates with various formats and layouts that trigger more creative ideas in the candidates’ minds. Here are a couple of helpful tips to keep in mind while resume building followed by a sample dental office manager resume.
• Don’t tell but Show: Space on a resume is wasted in stating your skills. Use bullet tables to highlight your skills instead and mention your accomplishments in bullet points that reflect the skills highlighted.
• Recent experience only: Employers are not interested in what you were doing 10 years back. Do not include experience from more than 7 years ago.
Below is a dental office manager resume sample for further guidance in this regard.
