When writing your resume, you’ll want to establish credibility quickly by listing your education, experience, and certifications close to the top.
It’s important to keep your resume concise and easy to skim. If you’re unsure of how to structure your resume, check out what others are doing by viewing profiles and examples on sites like Care.com, or asking a caregiver friend to see what they’re using.
In addition to your resume, don’t forget the value of references. These should be people you trust to talk about your strengths and weaknesses in a way that will reinforce what you’ve already said about yourself.
