So, how often should I really be updating my resume? It is a seemingly obvious answer… when you are looking for a new job; but maybe there is more to it than you are thinking.
I update my resume anytime I gain a new skill- you never know how long you will remember you learned to do something that is worthy of your resume! Also, I like to read mine occasionally, to make sure there are no typos. When you call yourself detail oriented, but have a resume littered with typos, well guess what that looks like! Oops. I also update my resume anytime I learn a new buzz word I should use instead of something I listed. Maybe I listed that I followed the regulated rules whenever I processed something, but then the next day learned the word Compliance. Sounds a lot nicer, huh?
That’s all for now, good luck, and until next time! 😎
