Parting Tips

Note that, when writing a resume, you’re basically selling yourself. Try to make it as well-crafted as you can, and even ask a friend or family member to edit and improve it for you. Highlight your accomplishments as a physiotherapist that presents a good picture of your skills and expertise.

When writing in paragraphs, add some white space to provide “breathing room” for the reader, and segment your resume with headings and sub-headings to introduce information. And lastly, NEVER lie in your resume.
