It’s tempting to wait, why should you get your resume updated now? Here’s the top reasons why you need to spend some time making sure your resume is ready to use:
Why You Should Get Your Resume Updated Now
In volatile times it’s important to be ready to pivot with changing needs and industry standards. If you procrastinate until the position opens you may be too slow to compete. By preparing before you absolutely need to, you will bring your mind back to your overall strategy and career goals, which is the key to personal success.
Make sure to give your updated resume to your current company’s HR department for possible internal positions as well as updating any of your pertinent social media or LinkedIn profile with your resume. Another perk of regularly updating your resume is that you won’t get any awkward glances from co-workers or supervisors if you do apply for positions with other companies.
Resume Updates for a Changing World
Staying flexible and agile is the key to navigating a swiftly changing job market which is exactly where we find ourselves. In the post-pandemic world, you need to be open to new opportunities and ready for change. Consider having multiple resumes ready to go, focused on different niches within your industry and career goals. When you’re prepared, you are ready to succeed no matter how the world changes.
