All Things Admin® Blog

It’s Admin Appreciation Month at All Things Admin! And we are so excited about all of the awesome training opportunities and admin recognition events happening for you in April! To help you keep track of what’s available, we’ve created our annual Admin Appreciation Month Celebrating Admins page to keep you connected.

As I’ve been traveling and speaking during the past few months, I’ve been polling my audiences about what they’re doing to stay prepared for career opportunities and job changes. Some of the questions I’ve asked include:

  • How recently have you updated your resume?
  • What is the state of your LinkedIn profile?
  • Do you have a professional portfolio of work samples?

The responses have been quite concerning.

  • Only about 20% of respondents have a resume that is current and ready to submit.
  • About 30% of respondents haven’t updated their resume for years! 
  • Approximately 25% of respondents don’t have a LinkedIn profile, or haven’t updated it in years.
  • 85% of respondents do not have a professional portfolio of work samples.

Your resume, a LinkedIn profile, and a professional portfolio are the three most important tools of your career toolkit! And you need all three of them ready to use at a moment’s notice.
