As a nurse recruiter with the Talent Acquisition Group at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, NY, Mari Moriarty, RN, MA, stresses that creating an effective resume is the gateway to getting the job you want. Your resume must communicate to recruiters and hiring managers that you are an intelligent and well-organized individual, and so your resume should be easy-to-read, organized, and error free.
The importance of a job interview cannot be overstated. In most cases, applications will have just one hour to give a future employer confidence that they can perform the job duties and make a good colleague. Think of the interview in terms of three C’s: communication, confidence, and competition.
Becoming a published author in the medical landscape can be a rewarding and productive experience. There are many motivations to write.

I vol­un­teered! The biggest impact I made was becom­ing a vol­un­teer chair­per­son for the Amer­i­can Can­cer Society’s Can­cer Pre­ven­tion Study-​​3 (CPS-​​3) onsite enroll­ment in July 2010.
