Resume Tips

Your professional summary should encapsulate your success factors, features and achievements throughout your career. The more features of your success and achievements applicable to your regulatory role, the better. There is no rule of thumb as to the length of your resume, but there is such a thing as “less is more.”

  • What experience, skills, aptitudes, or traits do you have that could impact an employer?
  • What skillsets have you developed?
  • What degrees and/or continuing education can you highlight?
  • What experience do you have with FDA filings? (IND, NDA, BLA, etc.) What was your role in this submission process? How many of these were approved?
  • Have you been involved in the development and execution of regulatory strategies?
  • What is your experience with pre-clinical, clinical, and post-approval regulatory activities?
  • Do you have experience with Regulatory CMC, Labeling, and/or Advertising Promotions?
