How do I list multiple jobs with similar job responsibilites on my resume without sounding repetitive?
I am a nurse who worked in an ICU at one hospital and then recently got a job in an ICU step down unit at another hospital. They both have almost the same job responsibilities.
I need to list them both on my resume as I am applying to graduate school. I need help with listing these but in a professional way that does not sound repetitive. Please help!
Answer: This is where a functional format or a hybrid format can come in handy. In both, you are emphasizing skills and/or achievements over job duties.
In preparing a resume recently for a teacher who had changed jobs yearly for 3 years, I first listed major accomplishments in his teaching career, followed by a list of duties performed in all teaching jobs, and then just listed employers, titles and dates of employment for the various jobs worked.
There are several samples of these formats on the pages I linked to above. For instructions about each format, see this page:
