September Is International Update Your Resume Month
This is the time to prepare for your job search in order to outshine your competition and go after your dream job with Market-Connections Resume Services
"If you are asked for your résumé, you want to be able to provide it quickly," says résumé writer Mandy Fard of Market-Connections Resume Writing Services. "It can take time to gather your accomplishments, and you don't want to forget something if you're in a rush."
Here are some guidelines for updating your résumé straight from www.market-connections.net:
1. Is your work experience up to date? Need to add your current position? Now is also the time to review your accomplishments and make sure they are reflected in your résumé.
2. Check your contact information. Make sure you've included your customized LinkedIn URL on your résumé.
3. Update your education, training, and certifications. Have you taken any classes in the last year? Earned a degree? Pursued a certification?
4. "Most important, make sure the résumé makes it clear who you are, what you're good at, and what type of job you're interested in," Mandy Fard said. "You have less than one minute to capture the attention of your résumé's reader, so make it count."
This is the 14th year for "International Update Your Résumé Month," originally created by Career Directors International in 2001 to support job seekers worldwide.
