  1. Hi all, I have worked as a CNA at 3 different locations over the last 3 years. I changed jobs all for legitimate reasons (i.e. needing to find a full-time position that wasn't available at my current job, changing from outpatient to critical care, etc.) ANYWAYS, should I list these jobs separately or combine them into one? The problem is, if I list them separately I feel my descriptions will be almost exactly the same and become very boring. How should I list these jobs and describe my experiences?
  2. Hey everyone! I was a student-athlete in college and received a scholarship to compete. I was never paid directly, but I did receive a partial scholarship towards my tuition. Should I list the type of recognition as "volunteer" or "compensated"? I appreciate the feedback!
  3. Hi! I'm curious what other people have done in the past/suggest for adding collegiate athletics to CASPA? It was a huge part of my 4 years in college, and I was also a captain so I wanted to include the leadership aspect to my application but I'm not sure how to enter accurately. If I add being a captain under leadership experience, it requires me to select "Volunteer, Academic, or Paid". I currently have my sport entered under "Memberships" but I'm open to changing it to something different. Any suggestions/insight you could offer would be great! Thank you in advanced!
  4. Hi everyone! I recently started a job as a pharmacy technician two weeks ago but I submitted my CASPA about a month ago. I wanted to go in and include my new job on my CASPA to show that I was hired and that I will be working as a pharm tech from now on, but I am not sure if this information will be distributed to schools or how to even update my CASPA. Has anyone done this and if so, how did you do it? Thanks!
  5. When creating our C.V.s, if we have experience performing the same job (same duties) in multiple environments/specialties, i.e., medical scribe in an E.D. and a dermatology office, and our duties are the same, is it ok to use the same job description for each? Or will that seem bland, generic, and lazy? For each job my duties included documenting the HPI, physical exam, and plan. Each job was a obviously a very unique experience and different from the other and I learned entirely different things, but my duties were the same. Can anyone offer any advice on how to tackle this problem? Thanks!
