Resume Writing Tips

Lakeland Health only accepts online applications.  While we understand applying for a position can be time consuming, you do have the option to upload your resume for review which is highly recommended. While the application portion should be completely filled out, below are things to keep in mind when preparing your resume:

  • Organize in logical fashion (most recent work history should be listed first)
  • Dates are important (be specific)
  • Be as clear and concise as possible (describe your experiences with concrete words)
  • Font should be easy to read (avoid using all CAPS)
  • Show results!  Lakeland looks for applicants who make changes and are able to show results!

Things to keep in mind when preparing your cover letter:

  • Direct and to-the-point
  • Tailor to the position you are applying
