A friend on Instagram had shared his post and that’s how I learned about his work.  I have greatly enjoyed his content and have purchased almost all his online products.   I reached out to Greg to get some answers to some of the most asked questions my audience asks me, and he was kind enough to reply.   I strongly encourage you to spend the time to learn from his knowledge and experience at .

1. What advice do you have for new graduate respiratory therapists who don’t have much experience?

Don’t be afraid to add bullet points under your education just like you would in a job. You can describe major projects, relevant courses completed, and other things you covered during your education to showcase the skills you developed before starting your career as a professional.

2. What advice do you have for experienced RTs who have worked only at one place for a long time but now are considering a change?

Firstly, don’t feel like this is a bad thing. Your history of loyalty will make you a desirable candidate. Also, it’s totally normal to make a change like this after a long time with one company. In your resume, just be sure to focus some content on the changes you helped to facilitate at your current job employer so that the potential employer knows you’re willing and able to adapt to change.

Thank you Greg for your time and for sharing your expertise with RTs!
