Intern of the Week! (Spring 2013) Smiles For Life Dentistry with John Freeman Some people may not be excited at the thought of spending forty hours a week at a dentist’s office. In fact, many dread the one or two hours per year they are forced to endure cleanings, fillings and other procedures. However, this writer knows one student who is thoroughly excited to spend his free time this semester at the dentist. John Freeman, Junior Health and Exercise Science major (with a concentration in Pre-Dental studies) is performing his internship this spring shadowing Dr. Joe McIntyre in his downtown dental practice, Smiles For Life. Freeman’s father is a dentist, but did not encourage his son to follow the same path. “He told me to chase my dreams, study other subjects, and decide what I really enjoy. I started college studying something completely different at a different liberal arts school. Now I found my home at Bridgewater College, and I eventually found my interests coming back to dentistry. When things in life continuously come back to you, they just can’t be ignored. Eventually I began some small research into the field to test my interests, and now I am hooked!” During the course of the internship so far, Freeman has assisted on everything from a routine dental cleaning to complex oral surgical procedures such as root canals and dental implants. He has also been able to make retainers and work with lab equipment. Freeman describes the personal value of his internship to his future career with much enthusiasm. “No matter where you are going in life, experience in your field of study always benefits you. This internship does not only meet requirements needed for graduate school, but it also provides you with much of the information other students will not receive until graduate school. Between this program and work at my dad’s office, I feel one step ahead with the basics under my belt. The experience hours will only build your resume as well as benefit your knowledge of the subject.” Looking for a great internship experience?

Do’s and Don’ts of Resume Writing We know the job market is tough right now, and that a faulty résumé can hinder your job search before you’re able to get your foot in the door. DO think Results. When writing your resume, think about results you’ve achieved for your employer. What are your quantifiable accomplishments? Think in terms of achievements like:
Increased sales Reduced expenses Secured valuable exposure Helped expand into new markets Created systems to improve efficiencies
DO specify. Saying “significantly decreased customer wait time” has less impact than “decreased customer wait time from 15 minutes to 30 seconds.” DO use action-oriented words. Make yourself sound proactive with terms like accelerated, chaired, changed, channeled, charted, debugged, decentralized. DO go with a summary or profile instead of an objective. The goal of this section is to develop a hard-hitting introductory declaration packed with your most sought-after skills, abilities, accomplishments and attributes. DO write your resume after you have identified your ideal job. The more closely you can target your profile to the employer’s needs, the better your results will be. DO have a hobbies or special interests section (but keep it short). Do you run marathons a few times a year? Are you into mountain climbing, building or restoring your own cars, or inventing gadgets and doodads? Certain activities are quite challenging –- physically, psychologically and emotionally –- and can show that you’re self-motivated, goal-oriented, persistent and unafraid of facing difficult circumstances. If your hobby or interest falls into this category, including it couldn’t hurt and could peak interest. D0 use spell check, but DON’T rely on it. Using “their” when you should use “they’re” is just as bad as an outright typo. Have at least one other person proofread your resume for mistakes. DON’T use “I”. A résumé is a source of professional details and facts. Cut the pronouns, passive and unnecessary words and get straight to the point. DON’T put the years in your summary. Some disagree with me on this, but I advise you to leave out phrases like “15 years experience” – if your resume is accurate it will speak for itself. DON’T get stuck on your job titles or descriptions. You’ve likely had many more duties and the skills required to do them than indicated in industry-standard job titles and descriptions. Accept this and let the content, not the title do the talking. DON’T exaggerate. DON’T overlook non-work experiences. Your time organizing a charity fund-raiser, presiding over a cultural organization or participating in groups not only looks good on resumes, but also gives you legitimate professional experience with value. DO keep your resume updated — you never know when you might need it. Dawn Quesnel, CPCC, PCC, aka, Coach DQ via Women for Hire
