TIPS ON HOW TO CREATE A GREAT RESUME

If you are interested in getting a job within the medical cannabis industry for positions of any nature you definitely need a RESUME. An effective resume can open the door to a job interview, which would otherwise be difficult to get.

 When preparing your resume you should remember the following:

Avoid doing it in a stereotypical way. The resume should show details of the applicant’s personality, revealing the applicant’s sense of creativity. Be individualized and structured according to the position applied for without sharing personal information.

The wording of the resume should be clear, attractive, persuasive and not too long. The academic preparation should include the years of study achieved, honors or awards obtained, areas of specialization, training and names of educational institutions attended. Be sure to include completed courses related to medical cannabis and whether you hold an Occupational License from the Department of Health. 

Work experiences should include the last three or four jobs, starting with the most recent one if there are gaps between jobs. If you have not had previous work experience you should indicate this. This should include the year you started and ended the job, company name, address, phone numbers and responsibilities.

In the data of interest you can include additional data about yourself, such as entities to which you belong, civic appointments, distinctions received and any other data that may provide a more complete picture of you.

The length of the summary should not exceed two pages. It should not be confused with a historical account of his life.

It should not include demographic data about the person.

References are optional and can be provided if required.
