SEPTEMBER IS INTERNATIONAL “UPDATE YOUR RESUME” MONTH


Not only are the kids preparing to go back to school, but it’s time for the “grown ups” to prepare, too– for unexpected opportunities! Is your resume ready to be viewed? Is it loaded with everything you’ve accomplished? Would you hand it out to a stranger (i.e the Hiring Manager) tomorrow?

IF NOT, YOU NEED TO UPDATE IT!


What would you do if you were told about a fantastic opportunity that seemed tailor-made for you, but you only had a day to submit your resume to the person? Are you ready? Worse, what if you look at it and realize, it doesn’t need to just be updated, it needs to be REWRITTEN! I don’t know about other resume writers, but I am booked up for at least a week in advance.

What have you accomplished since your resume was written? Certifications? Training? Career advancement? Continued education? A job move? 2? 3? Yikes! What are you waiting for?

Be prepared for the golden opportunity– update your resume today and spare yourself the pain of missing out it tomorrow.
