LOS ANGELES - Aug. 24, 2022 - PRLog -- Because you never know when you will need to use your résumé, the month of September has been designated "International Update Your Résumé Month" as an annual reminder for job seekers to review their résumé, LinkedIn profile, and other career documents.

"If you are asked for your résumé, you want to be able to provide it quickly," says Mandy Fard, CPRW, CMRW, of Market-Connections Professional 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:
  • 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.
  • Check your contact information. Make sure you've included your customized LinkedIn URL on your résumé.
  • Update your education, training, and certifications. Have you taken any classes in the last year? Earned a degree? Pursued a certification? Attended a job-related seminar?

"Most importantly, make sure the résumé makes it clear who you are, what skills you have, and what type of job you're targeting," Fard said. "You have less than one minute to capture the attention of your résumé's reader, so make it count."

This is the 21st year for "International Update Your Résumé Month," created by Career Directors International in 2001 to support jobseekers worldwide.
