Prior to beginning work on this assignment,

This week, you will continue developing your ePortfolio by adding your resume to your profile.

Step 1: Find a job description

Preparing a resume that will lead to an interview requires careful analysis of a specific job description. Search for and find a job description for a position that interests you in the health care administration field. Use the Ashford Career Services Job Board & Niche Jobs to find reputable and niche-focused job boards. Health care administration job boards are listed under “Health, Human Services, and Science.” Try searching by industry, position title, or specific skills or qualifications. Review Best Keywords to Use in Your Job Search (Links to an external site.) for hints on search practices. Even if you already have a great job, this exercise will build skills that you may need in the future.

Step 2: Resume and Job scan

After you have identified a specific job description, you will need to optimize your resume for applying to that position by completing the following:

  • Revise your resume to better align with the job description. This could include improving bullet points to better reflect the job requirements, or rephrasing skills and qualifications to better reflect those listed in the job description (for instance, you might change the word “supervised” to “managed” to better address that requested qualification). Be honest as you optimize your resume, but be certain to use the language in the job description wherever possible. For help listing transferable skills, review this article: The Ultimate Transferrable Skills List for Your Resume: 50+ Transferable Skills for Your Resume (Links to an external site.).
  • Use Job scan to compare your resume to the job description. Jobscan is a web-based tool that provides instant feedback on how closely your resume matches a specific job description. Access Job scan here: Optimize a Resume with Jobscan (Links to an external site.). Paste the contents of your resume and the job description to generate an analysis.
  • Explore your Jobscan analysis and make substantive changes. Explore your report and make the suggested changes. This could include modifying keyword choices, improving bullet points and quantifiable outcomes, and making changes to layout or section headings.
  • Generate another Jobscan report with your optimized resume. Take note of whether your resume more closely aligned with the job description after making the changes suggested by Jobscan. Also take note of any required skills or qualifications you do not possess. Did your percentage of alignment increase? If so, by how much?

NOTE: Jobscan currently allows for two resume scans. Contact Career Services (Links to an external site.) if you need additional scans.

In your resume,

  • Include a header with your contact information.
  • Summarize your professional history.
  • Outline your education history.
  • Organize the content for easy scanning.
  • Use information from the job description to optimize your resume.
  • Use concise language.
