It’s the first document someone asks for when they want to hire for an open position. It’s the most important document for making a great first impression and opening the door for a potential interview. And you should keep it current and up-to-date…but few people actually do. What is it?
As an admin, your resume is one of the most important components in your professional toolkit. Yet it’s easy to let updating it slide when you don’t have an immediate need for using it. The problem is, that very scenario makes updating it a lot harder, and you risk making costly mistakes in the process.
When was the last time you updated your resume? Does your resume include accomplishments for each position, as well as job responsibilities? Are you using the right format and layout to catch a hiring manager’s eye?
If you want to be ready for any change or opportunity at a moment’s notice — planned or unplanned — then you need an up-to-date resume and you need to apply the principles of organization to your career!
