As a concrete block of information, a nurse technician resume is considered all-encompassing. It has all the information that a hiring manager will need to decide on calling you for an interview.
While the cover letter helps too, it is the resume that most hiring managers are interested in.
Remember that each cover letter that you write focuses a reader’s attention on the accompanying resume. So the resume is, in fact, an important document and needs to be taken seriously.
Everything matters in a resume.
When you begin writing one, do not for a moment think that you do not need to pay attention to all parts. You do.
To see what well-written resumes look like, have a look at the following resume example for a nurse technician position:
