Resume/CV Review Program
ASHP has created a Resume/CV Review Program to assist pharmacy technicians and pharmacy technician students in developing an effective resume or CV. Any ASHP pharmacy technician member may submit a resume or CV to ASHP through the online form below for review. However, priority will be given to graduating pharmacy technician students.
Submitted resumes/CVs will be assigned to volunteer reviewers who are experienced ASHP pharmacy technician or pharmacist members dedicated to providing quality feedback. Please submit a Word version of your resume or CV saved with the following file name: “Smith_John_Resume or CV”. Only submissions following this filing nomenclature will be accepted.

Transform Your Resume into a CV
As previously mentioned, a CV is a more detailed document than a resume. In addition to showcasing your work experience and educational background, a CV also can highlight your awards, research efforts, and professional engagement. ASHP offers a number of volunteer opportunities pharmacy technician members can engage and get involved. To learn more, visit ASHP Member Center.
