I work in a hospital as a Housekeeper, I am going for a Unit secretary position as well as Operator.
How can I present my job duties in good writing that will "wow" the person reading my Resume?Answer:
Erika, think about transferable skills. Since the position you are going for is quite different than the one you're currently in, that's your best bet. Transferable skills are those that can be valuable in a variety of jobs. Examples would be communication skills, work ethic, ability to meet deadlines, organizational skills, and so on.
Also, think about achievements in your current position. Do you always finish your assigned housekeeping duties ahead of schedule? Have you ever received "employee of the month"? Things like that will impress future employers.
