Physician Assistant New Graduate Resume

Saturday, January 19, 2019

Creating a resume as a new graduate seems simple, right? That's what I thought too, until I sat down to make mine. Thankfully our program helped us with this by having someone come in and give us a lecture on how to make resumes, which helped me get started, but I was still scrambling for the best way to present myself as professional.

Since some of you requested this, today I'm sharing what all I included on my resume and other "optional" sections that can also be included. I am no expert at making resumes and I will state that this is my first "professional" resume in the real world so please bear that in mind as you read this post. All I want to do is give you a strong backbone for your resume. If you haven't read my tips for interviews as a new PA, be sure to read this post. Ok let's get to it.

Interviews as a new graduate can be both exciting and intimidating, especially if you've never held a job in healthcare before (like me). Here are some things I have learned on the way or did to try and have a successful interview.

PA Job Search FAQs

Monday, November 26, 2018

I hope everyone had a happy thanksgiving and some amazing food! Last week, you all asked some questions about a job search on instagram and today I am sharing all the questions with answers! Thank you all for your questions, I'm sure you're not the only one who wanted to ask that and by asking you may be helping someone else out! I was going to answer these questions as a part of another post but I figured since there are so many, I could do it better justice by writing a separate FAQ post! Here we go.

How to Decide on a PA Job

Wednesday, November 21, 2018

You finished didactic and clinical year, graduated from PA school, and passed the PANCE! Now what? If you already have a job lined up, congratulations! But if not, you've come to the right place. I believe that every phase of this PA journey can be challenging in its own way and job search is not for the faint of heart. Now that I have secured my first position as a PA, I feel ready to share some of the things I've learned on the way.

Preparing for the PA-C Life

Monday, October 22, 2018

Clinical year flies by so fast. Just as you get used to one rotation, its time to move on to the next one. In all the frenzy of learning how to practice medicine and how to not make a fool of yourself on rotations (been there done that), it's easy to forget to plan for life after graduation. I am here to share a timeline with you all today of how I prepared myself (along with things I wish I had done) for life a few months before and after graduation.

The PANCE is a 5 hour, 300 questions exam that all PA students must take after graduating from PA school to obtain their certification. After passing the PANCE, a PA is recognized as "board certified PA" and can apply for a state license.

Feeding myself through PA school

Sunday, September 16, 2018

I recently received a request from one of you asking me to share my lunch recipes on the blog. What a great suggestion, I'm surprised I never thought of it myself! Since 95% of people I know LOVE food as much as I do, I figured I'd mix it up a bit today and share some of the recipes I made during didactic and clinical years of PA school!
