Building a Professional Resume

Pinnacle has extensive experience in advising our candidates on what our Medical Device clients look for and building clean, tailor-designed professional resumes. We highly recommend that you call us to discuss how we can help you create a world-class resume. Here are a few tips:

  • Less is more; highlight the skills specific to the job to which you are applying. By creating several versions, your resume will highlight the skills and expertise that make you qualified for the position.
  • Don’t include skills that are not relevant or outside of the job requirements. Unnecessary information on your resume does not make you appear more qualified, instead it dilutes the strength of your experience and will often result in your resume goingin the “pass” pile.
  • Have a clear, well-defined objective for the position for which you are applying.
  • Have a skills grid on the front page of your resume.

We find that resume writing is best discussed live;

Our Mission

We consider it a privilege to be part of the Medical Industry and the commitment to saving lives. Our part of that commitment is to provide world-class talent. Our goal is to exceed expectations in every step of the placement process, and to be one of the most effective search firms serving the Industry.


We know how competitive the search for talent in the Medical Device Industry is and while Corporate Recruiting Departments are now very effective and efficient, the shortage of talent has created a hyper-competitive marketplace in the search for talent. We know that often the best talent is passive, which is why we spend our time on the phone recruiting, in addition to other traditional methods. We find the best candidates are often the individuals who were not looking, a person satisfied in their current role but motivated by opportunity and challenge.

Having the following in place is key to our success:

  • Understanding the open requisition and requirements for a candidate
  • Knowing how to excite a candidate about a position as well as the organization itself
  • Commitment to the placement process between the client and Pinnacle; good communication and feedback is key throughout the hiring process

We look for candidates who have a stable work history, have shown clear progression in their career, have demonstrable accomplishments and who can quickly hit the ground for you. We are a search firm that is up for the challenge, – hard searches in where we shine the brightest. Give us a shot!

Because his level of knowledge of the technical skills, Eric needs no hand holding, and is diligent and seems to always find a way to deliver exactly what we were looking for.
