Position: Nurse Extern in Women's Services at Erlanger

Early this semester I was informed of a summer externship opportunity for students entering their senior year of nursing school. The position I wanted in Women’s services, however, was highly competitive, and only 4 students would be chosen. I considered my strengths and previous work history and knew I was qualified for the position, but I wanted my application to stand out. I reached out to the Center for Calling & Career (CCC) and I am so glad I did. I met one-on-one to review (and perfect) my résumé. I learned how to utilize information in the job description to my advantage and use key terms that flag my résumé as a match for the job description. When I was given an interview for the position, I made a second appointment in the CCC to practice. Mrs. Thompson looked through the job description and formulated specific (challenging) questions that I could expect in the interview. She then gave me feedback on what was excellent and what could be improved. Weeks later I was offered the position and now have my dream summer job! Seeking help from the CCC was the best decision I made because it not only helped my résumé stand out and prepared me for my interview, but I also learned skills that I can take with me into interviews and applications in the future.
