PharmacyThisWeek: Third Person Resumes / 24k Jobs / 10 New Advertisers

January 8, 2019



Welcome to PharmacyThisWeek & Happy New Year!

Hope everyone is back with us for the new year and welcome everyone new. Hoping 2019 is an awesome year for us all!!

Third person resumes = Just don’t.

There’s really not a whole bunch more to say about third person resumes (or LinkedIn profiles).

Wait, maybe PharmacyWeek has a little few more thoughts on them:

  1. They come across as pompous in a lot of instances
  2. They are ridiculously old skewl
  3. I expect to see you in your smoking jacket, holding a martini, dictating to your secretary when I read one of these. And that just makes me laugh, not feel the urge to consider you a serious candidate
  4. They’re not engaging; it’s hard for me to connect with you when you continuously refer to yourself as “Misterrr Ainsworth”
  5. If you structure your resume in third person AND attach a photograph? I may die

So, really. Lose the formality. And go with first person, accomplishment-based (as opposed to task-based), bullet-pointed, clean resumes. For heavens sake … and if you need help with your resume/CV, or just want a free review, then see the following!!

Need help achieving that perfect ATS-friendly resume/CV? Would you like a no-cost review?

We have an amazing and gifted resume writer who, in addition to being an expert in the field of writers, also just happens to be a Pharmacist as well! Her name is Susan Stanley, PharmD, CPRW. She is specializing in resumes and CVs just for pharmacy professionals. Susan is offering a significant discount (up to 30%) to PharmacyWeek members. If you are interested in a no-cost review, or are ready for a re-write now, please email me your resume/CV at kevin@pharmacyweek.com and I will forward it to Susan, you may also see Susan’s ad below.

Be sure and use discount code PWKMRF14 when you contact Susan. Again, there is no cost for her to review what you have or for her to give you her opinion.

Wow, Susan, this looks amazing! I think your presentation of me will make a world of difference :). Thank you!!

Jenn, PharmD
