Finding Laboratory Jobs: Getting the Recruiter's Attention

Although the job outlook for laboratory jobs is good, getting a recruiter's attention can help you land a job quicker. Investing time in your resume and following application instructions carefully will payoff. Read on to learn simple tips to getting a recruiter's attention.

Include accomplishment that are quantifiable. Stay away from statements that can't be backed up by numbers, and a glowing recommendation is always helpful.

Read the laboratory job description carefully. Resumes shouldn't take a “one size fits all” approach. Instead, they should be tailored to the specific job description, and instructions for applying should be followed carefully.

Use keywords in your resume. Review the position description and make a list of the requirements for laboratory jobs. Then, find ways to incorporate these keywords into your resume – without making it look awkward. When applying to jobs online, this will make your job a better match.
