About This Sample Combination Resume for a Nuclear Medicine Technologist

With very little work, an employer reading this resume can spot what Fayed (not his real name) has to offer. Here are things to note.

  • Professional title at the top. Fayed has earned the title of Nuclear Medicine Technologist through his education and internship. By using that title at the top of his resume instead of a job objective statement, he promotes himself as someone who is a Nuclear Med Tech, not a wannabe.
  • Education section. Because Fayed's college degrees and coursework are relevant to his career objective, he placed his Education section near the top of his resume, right under the Profile section.
  • Keywords and skills. With lists of coursework, certifications, and skills, this resume is loaded with keywords that are key to the success of Fayed's job search.
  • Skill headings. In the Experience section, Fayed grouped his bullet point statements under two skill headings. Notice how he added "training included" to each of those skill headings ("Technical training included" and "Administrative training included"). He did this because he wanted to be completely honest about the level of his experience.

From the Collection of Resume Examples

Fayed's resume and the other resume examples in this collection were created using resume templates from my Ready-Made Resume Builder.
