If you’ve recently graduated from a certified nursing aide (CNA) training program, it may be time for you to start searching for a job in the industry. A resume helps to showcase your experience and skills when you apply for jobs. You may have already learned how to compose a resume for your job search, but when it comes to writing one, you may be stuck. However, you don’t have to spend too much time writing it!

Sometimes, it’s nice to have an example to help you along the way. The Harris School of Business wants our graduates to have the best opportunities at finding jobs. We offer our recently graduated CNA students, or soon-to-be graudates, in Connecticut a sample resume for you to use as you compose your own.

Remember to customize your resume to your own skill set and experience. Make sure your resume is the best and most accurate representation of your studies and experiences so you and your employers can choose the right candidate for the job!
