An example of an Anesthesiologist Resume

Contact Details

The hiring manager will want to be able to get in touch with you after they see your resume. Your contact details should be clearly visible. Include your phone number, email address, mailing address (just the city and state should be fine) and a link to a professional profile such as LinkedIn if you wish.

Professional profile

A professional profile tells recruiters about your experience and goals and is the main factor in deciding whether to read your resume or not. In two or three sentences you have to convince recruiters that you are perfect for the job. Talk about your career and plans for the future. You can also mention areas you are specialized in that were highlighted in the job listing.

You should also avoid buzzwords by using the Cresuma buzzword finder to filter out the buzzwords in your resume.

Work Experience

The progression of your career is important to know that you have been properly trained. Recruiters like to see where you went for residency, and later career moves. This helps them to know whether you are the right fit for them.

You need to talk about your work experience in reverse-chronological order to show the path of your career. You also need to add your position, the hospital you worked at, how long you worked there by showing the range from the month/year that you started and the month/year that you left. You should also add a couple of bullet points highlighting key roles and achievements that you had.

How to add work experience to your resume


Your education is obviously important. As an anesthesiologist, you have completed several years of schooling, so you don't need to start with your high school diploma. Work your way back from your latest degree up to your college degree.

You need to indicate how long you studied, the program that you studied and the university that granted you the degree.

Having your skills put on your resume is helpful. It helps the recruiter know if you are the one, they should hire for the role. Try to include a mix of hard and soft skills in this section.
