What is a Universal Profile?
Why is a Universal Profile helpful for your job search?
- It’s like a resume x 100.
- Recruiters will know you are fully prepared and ready to go.
- It removes all the busywork of job applications.
Think of your profile as a master key to thousands of jobs across the country. You fill it out once, and you can unlock your dream job.
Reminder: You are far more likely to get a response to your applications with a completed profile!
Think of this as a very short version of a cover letter. Give as much color about your career, hobbies, and goals as possible, all while still keeping it short and sweet.
It is important to add two references for hiring managers to contact during your interview and hiring process. These references should be professional references, and preferably a direct manager or supervisor if possible.
The “Work Experience” section of your profile is imperative. This is where you can highlight your previous jobs: where you worked, what you did and how long you were there. NurseFly makes it SO easy to fill this section out. All you have to do is start typing your facility name, and once NurseFly finds it in the database, most information will autofill.
Highlighting your education is fundamental. Be sure to include the school, city, state, graduation date, and degree type. This one is fairly self explanatory.
Here is the area to show off all of your accomplishments and hard work. Upload resumes, cover letters, awards–anything that will show recruiters and facilities that you are ready to hit the ground running!
As we all know, license documentation is necessary to be able to work as a healthcare professional. Uploading your license once on NurseFly is so simple, just fill in the required information pertaining to your license, upload a picture or document, and you are good to go!
The certifications section is similar to your license section logistically, but here you have the opportunity to highlight your required certifications, as well as any additional education and certifications you have worked so hard for. The more you have, the more you stand out to recruiters!
“Job Search” allows you to specify any preferences you have when looking for your dream job. Here you can indicate whether you like day shift, night shift, or whether you’re flexible; targeted pay; if you are actively looking for a job; start date; preferred locations and requested time off. By filling this out, you’ll be able to match with the right jobs for you.
Your skills checklist is an easy and productive way for recruiters to see your skillset. There are pre-filtered lists for each specialty. We’ll be honest with you: this will take a few minutes, but, we highly recommend it. It is a powerful way to showcase your strengths far and above what a simple resume would do.
