Community Health Workers perform a variety of different tasks but are often responsible for promoting health and nutrition. Resumes in this field showcase such responsibilities as focusing on efforts to improve the health of women before, during, and after pregnancy; and conducting outreach and enrollment in health coverage, as well as coordination and facilitation of access to health care services. Many employers require a bachelor's degree for this position, and example resumes show that fluency in languages commonly spoken in the community in which the Community Health Worker works is a necessity.
