Resume plays a very important role in the job hunt, the way you have designed your resume makes huge impact on your chances of getting hired. Resume is a document that has to be obligatorily carried in any job interview. I need not tell, that a resume should be written very briefly, and should not include any unnecessary details. It incorporates important details of the candidate like - contact details, educational qualifications, skill set, and the most important one being career objective.

It is the duty of the medical receptionist to maintain the logs of appointments, and deal with the incoming patients. She should have excellent people management and communication skills. The position of a receptionist is a very responsible position, and demands patience and total commitment on part of the concerned person. In emergency cases, she is also expected to carry out some medical work under the doctor's supervision. Confidence and a pleasing personality are two characteristics that one should possess. In this article, we will discuss a resume sample, along with the template and cover letter.
