    Default Resume tips

    Ive been getting chances to interview for oil companies and such with this resume but an emt position at ther ER i was told i was not selected for more qualified candidates.
    Just asking if anyone has time to take a look at this and if anything sticks out tell me what i could do. Do not want my app for the fire dept to sound the same as the ER job.
    I appreciate it

    I work in an ER in a busy city Hospital and one of the qualifications that helped me get the job was Paramedic.

    We have also hired non paramedics but they had a minimum 5 years experience running EMS. Unless you get to an interview and can wow the person/s doing the interviewing you might need more time under your belt.

    Hope that helps.

    Good luck
