Your resume should never become stagnant. Instead, it should be a continuously changing document because it represents your professional growth. Here are three actions you can take, today, to keep it that way:
- Pick a time for updates: Most people wait until they have a prospective job in mind before updating their resume. Resist this temptation and be different! Instead, consider updating your resume quarterly and of course when you change jobs.
- Review your job description: Take time to make sure you’ve addressed everything within your job description. If you don’t, did you know that you may actually be cheating yourself out of critical skills? It is important to learn all that you while you are still within your current job so that you can move on, minus regrets.
- Seek advice: Get a professional opinion about your resume. Remember that having a well-written resume is not a fad and will not go out of style. Because of this, you will want to possess a quality and consistent document that highlights your accomplishments.
These three steps are a great way to set yourself up for growth and success within your career. Remember that you have much more to accomplish. What are you waiting for?
