Job hunting isn’t at the top of anyone’s list of enjoyable pastimes, but it doesn’t have to be a nightmare either. Draft a thoughtful resume that showcases your skills and achievements in a way that speaks to the employer’s need, and you’ll be halfway to a new executive director position.

As the executive director of an assisted living facility, you’re responsible for a wide variety of tasks that require a range of skills. Your resume needs to covey your experience with administrative tasks like budgeting, program development, and staff management as well as your direct care experience and commitment to serving a senior and/or disabled population. Whenever possible, quantify your achievements. For example, you might mention that you maintained an occupancy rate of 90% or that you managed a staff of fifteen. Finally, make sure that you list any licenses or certifications that you hold.
