Resources for those seeking employment in General Practice

Resume tips, tell your potential employer and prepare for a General Practice career.

I have been managing General Practices for a quarter of a century. I have hired hundreds of people (and, sadly, fired some) to be Medical Receptionists, Nurses, Practice Managers, Doctors and Allied Health Professionals.

To get hired for the position of a Medical Receptionist:

  • Please do not send a lengthy resume with all your life achievements and a promise to be the most outstanding employee in the world. We rarely read further than the first paragraph. Instead:
  • Send the shortest possible resume with an ‘executive summary’ about your achievements at the top. Explain in point form using short sentences what skills you have to succeed in your position. Example here.
  • If you do not have any medical reception experience, learn what you can do to let your potential employer know that you are a worthy candidate. Examples and resources here.

I wish you a great career,

Paul Soloviev
