It's always good to think big.
Even when you're just starting out, you should think really BIG.
There's a famous quote from Aldous Huxley that says "Every ceiling, when reached, becomes a floor, upon which one walks as a matter of course and prescriptive right."
And so now that I've done the school lesson for the day, I can get on with my resume bashing.
A youngin thought it would be a good idea to THINK BIG.
She started out with this:
"I'm currently studying to be a medical coding and insurance specialist but in the mean time I need a job to help me get through school."
Although completely IRRELEVANT to the portion of the insurance industry that we are in (ahem) I'll play along and keep reading.
Next line down from the "I need a job" plea:
Desired salary: $400-$700 per hour
And while you should never, EVER talk about money on a resume in general (more on that later), that is one damn high ceiling she set.
And that's one damn expensive medical billing and coding school too.
