Resources for those seeking employment in General Practice

Resume tips, what to tell your potential employer, how to prepare for a career in General Practice.

I have been managing General Practices for nearly two decades. 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 a position of a Medical Receptionist:

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

Wish you a great career,

Paul Soloviev
