How do you create a resume for a job in the health field?

I am a 22 year old Biology student would like to get a job as a phlembotomist or in the laboratory over the summer. I don’t have much work experience but I have been exposed to many different kinds of laboratory techniques (ELISA, RID, PCR, more ) and I would like to put this on my resume. I would like to just avoid putting a work history part in the resume all together, since this will be my first job in the health field. Would this be acceptable?

    Hi–usually you need a license to be a phlebotomist as well as a clinical lab tech. You might be able to get a research position at the university or work as a lab receptionist. So unless its an unlicensed position (research); the exposure is meaningless, sorry. I would contact some of the professors & see if they can hire an assistant for the summer. Hospitals & reference labs can use unlicensed people in the processing department of the lab.

    I would just put on the resume that you have lab skills with handling specimens (as the tests won’t matter themselves).
