Administrator rev ronin Posted February 19, 2012 Administrator Share Posted February 19, 2012 Graduation is in August, and I'm wondering how I should balance my CV. Prior to PA school, I have 18 years career in IT, roughly 3 helpdesk/support, 5 sysadmin, and 10 in information security, that last bit including 3 years as a first level manager. As such, I have publications, public presentations, a patent, corporate awards, professional certifications (a few I've kept and many I've let lapse). I still get 2-3 inquiries a week from headhunters who've seen my IT resume on a site that scraped it from my personal website (I never actually submitted it anywhere), even though I've been in school for 21 months. My issue is how much of this I include on my CV for PA work. It's not hard to give the impression that I can handle EMR in my sleep or understand HIPAA, but I look at my efforts at trying to put this all together... and as a hiring manager, I'd be more willing to hire me for an IT security job than a PA job. How have any of you recent grads with serious non-healthcare pre-PA accomplishments balanced things on your CV's? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
