Updating your resume
If your dream job became available today, would you be comfortable forwarding your existing resume without any changes?
Updating our resumes is easily overlooked when employed, and regularly put off until the last minute when considering a career move, which all too often means that key achievements and successes are omitted.
Updating your resume regularly ensures that you are not left scratching your head, trying to recall specific details or contributions about past projects and work environments. It is far easier to stay on top of your key successes by recording them as they happen and remain fresh in your mind.
The same is also true with references. Research indicates that employers rely heavily on references when narrowing down final candidate choices. Gathering references and keeping referee contact information up-to-date is therefore vitally important.
A small personal commitment is all it takes to keep your resume up-to-date… and your career on track, and by doing so, you ensure that you're ready for any job opportunity, no matter how unexpectedly it may arise!
