Dieticians take care of people's nutrition. They create nutrition plans according to the patient's needs. They supervise your eating habits and they may recommend you anything else other than the usual nutrition plan. E.g. they may tell you to run a determined number of miles every morning. They also deal with weight loss/gain, and cholesterol reduction, among other things. Some restaurant owners also work along with dieticians to implement a healthy menu plan. A bachelor's degree in foods and nutrition is required. Potential dieticians need to have a strong background in nutrition, chemistry, biology, physiology, etc. They can work in hospitals, health departments, private companies and even independently. A dietician's average salary is around $50,000. If you think that you're up for the job, you should redact a dietician resume that specifies the kinds of job positions that are linked to the career that you've pursued.
