Review the job posting closely.

Go through the Medical Assistant posting you're applying to, and identify hard skills the company is looking for. For example, skills like Editing, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere Pro are possible skills. These are skills you should try to include on your resume.

Emphasize accomplishments that involved a team.

Teamwork is a common competency hiring managers look for, particularly for Medical Assistant roles, so include at least 1-2 examples of accomplishments that involved leading a team, or collaborating with others to complete a project.
