When was the last time you updated your resume?
In today’s market, it’s important to keep in mind that ALL jobs are temporary. Even if you are feeling like you are at the top rung on your career ladder, circumstances can change in a flash. Keeping your resume current, and staying in contact and nurturing your relationships with your most valued references via social media is ESSENTIAL.
COMPARE your resume to the three sample resumes in this article from The Muse.
- Am I using the top half of my resume to show off my most valuable skills?
- Am I using action words to summarize my experiences in the most effective way possible?
- What do I need to add (or cut) to demonstrate I am the best candidate for the job I am applying to?
For that last point, keep in mind, you may need to revise your resume for each position!
