Having an up-to-date résumé is very important, but even more important than updating annually is to update it whenever something changes - whether you are looking for a job or not. There are many situations that call for updating your résumé, including:
“The truth is, no one really knows when they will have to pull their résumé out and start shopping it around. Even for those of us who have a plan and follow it, changes happen (and sometimes they can happen without notice).”
A well-tailored résumé will help you stand out in a crowd of job applicants. Being prepared to share your résumé at any given time gives you a competitive advantage.
Now you have an idea of when you should update your résumé, but you may still wonder why it is important to do this so often. The truth is, no one really knows when they will have to pull their résumé out and start shopping it around. Even for those of us who have a plan and follow it, changes happen (and sometimes they can happen without notice). Having your résumé prepared and ready for submission at all times means you are ready to meet with hiring managers with little notice.
The following are some other great reasons for having this important document prepared and up-to-date at all times:
Are you ready to update your résumé? Don't have a résumé to update? Want to start fresh? There is an abundance of resources at your local library, at colleges and universities, and on the Internet.
