Are you in training to be a phlebotomy technician? If so, you will soon need a resume in order to start applying for jobs in your new field. If you’ve never written a resume before, it can be hard to know where to get started.
Start by reading some resume-writing tips. These tips will help you understand what employers are looking for in a resume. Next you can use sample resumes to get an idea of what a typical phlebotomist resume looks like.
If you are just starting out in your new field and don't have any job experience to include on your resume, you can write a skills-based resume. This means you will list your skills at the top of your resume rather than listing your past employment. See below for an example of a skills-based resume.
