Tips for Writing a Better Radiology Technician Resume

1. Keep a simple format

For healthcare professionals, a conservative resume format is usually best. Try using a traditional serif font like Century or Cambria for your body text and a clean sans serif font like Calibri for your subject headings. Use color sparingly, if at all, and keep your entire resume as one column rather than setting information off to one side. Avoid fancier Microsoft Word format options like WordArt, Tables, and Text Boxes (which can muck up ATS anyway). This conservative approach is well-suited to your field, but it’s often the best way to frame a more complex or convoluted work history. As Leonardo da Vinci once said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”

2. Categorize your career details

Healthcare resumes can have many more sections than resumes in other fields (perhaps rivaled only by science or academia). How do you gather and organize all those details? The trick is setting “global” format rules that govern the entire document, no matter how long or multifaceted it becomes. For example, virtually all the text on your resume should fall in one of just four categories:

  • Section headings
  • Organization names
  • Personal titles (like “Radiology Technician” or “Bachelor of Science”)
  • Main/body text

 

Leave the main/body text as is but choose one or more unique format settings for the other three categories, such as bold, italic, or UPPERCASE. You can then apply the settings to all text in that category across the document (to that end, try Microsoft Word’s nifty Format Painter tool). Following this method allows you to set your career details off from each other clearly and consistently.

3. Avoid jargon

Any time you use a long, unwieldy word when a short word would do, that’s jargon. A classic example: People use the words “utilize” or “utilization” when they should use “use.”

Jargon can be especially tempting if you’re in healthcare, where plenty of longer words and terms don’t actually have a shorter alternative (for example, “Open Reduction Internal Fixation”). These terms have a place on your resume, as long as they’re relevant to your goals. The problem is when you let words that should be short and simple become words (often ending in “tion”) that are long and clunky.

Grammar expert Patricia T. O’Conner defines jargon as “pseudotechnical terms that are supposed to lend the speaker an aura of expertise…. you can use it to discuss things you know little about, and without saying anything.” But you don’t need language to give you expertise. You already have it. You know about radiology and have plenty to say about your past work, so you don’t need to rely on jargon for your resume. Any time you find yourself using a long word, stop and ask: Is there a shorter synonym? This will help you keep your resume clear and concise.

Example:

  • Perform CT, mammography, and x-ray examinations using complex imaging equipment

How to Align Your Radiology Technician Resume With the Job Description

The Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts that jobs for radiologic and MRI technologists will increase by about six percent between 2021 and 2031.

When you find a radiology technician job posting that interests you, look closely at the required skills and credentials. Are there any you possess but haven’t featured on your resume yet? Maybe you’ve worked at a similar healthcare facility or with a similar age range of patients. If so, add a mention of that experience to your resume’s Profile or Key Skills section. Taking this extra step will make your resume more inclusive to the job at hand and more likely to attract the hiring manager’s notice.
