How to Make Your Resume Stand Out and Have the Perfect Interview as a Unit Secretary

In this video, I talk about making your resume stand out and how to have a great interview. 
The Resume:


  • If you have work experience that varies from field to field, create two separate resumes. I have a professional resume that lists my medical knowledge and a retail resume that lists the jobs I worked at Eckerd’s, BP Gas Station, Winn-Dixie, and many more.
  • Any job you’ve worked for less than six months should not be included unless it’s relevant to the job you are applying for.
  • Your resume should not include any job from over 10 years unless relevant for the job you are applying for.
  • List your accomplishments on your resume. Were you on a committee at a previous job? List it. Did you train new employees? List that too.
  • List all software that you know how to use. Microsoft Excel? Salesforce? You know the drill. Put it on there.
The Interview:


  • Do not schedule it for the next day if called for an interview. Instead, give yourself two days or more to get yourself together. Get your hair done/haircut. Get new shoes/purses/accessories. Make sure you have copies of your resumes printed. You need to be dressed for business.  
  • Be prepared to take a typing test.
  • If you are still employed somewhere else, and they ask you why you want to leave, you can say something along the lines of “I would like a change of scenery” or “I would like a new challenge.”
  • Do not go in there desperate or too eager; instead, you need to be confident.
