Repeat after me, today is the day that I will update my resume. Today is the day that I will update my resume. Rarely has a person contacted me because they were happily employed and wanted to update their resume as part of their healthy career management program. By keeping your resume current you will:
- be ready when an unforeseen opportunity presents itself
- be ready to launch your job search if you are suddenly laid off
- have a healthy awareness of your unique strengths, skills, and accomplishments
- be less stressed should you find yourself in an unexpected job search
- be ahead of the competition because you will also be active in your professional and social network and have a strong online presence.
- be in a better position for promotions and salary increases
