An Up-to-date Resume is Critical to Your Success, No Matter Where You are in Your Career

Is your CV up-to-date?


I get contacted a lot by people who need an urgent resume update because a recruiter has just contacted them, or their dream company has an opening.


I don’t need to tell you that people usually panic then and try to write the resume themselves – which often results in a scribbled document and a massive disappointment…


So, when and how frequently do you need to update your resume?


🟢 Ideally, if you are not looking for a new job, once every 3-6 months, or after each performance review you have with your manager


🟢 When you notice that changes are coming – change in company ownership, downsizing, layoffs


🟢 Before you start actively looking for a new job – after you set your target role, industry, or employer


Here is how to do it:


✅ List the accomplishments and results you achieved since the last update - always use metrics!


✅ Describe shortly every change in your role if your employer stayed the same


✅ Include new skills gained or certifications acquired (remove anything that seems obsolete)


You’ll have a master document then, and it will be easy to adapt it quickly to the new opportunity when it comes.


Work smarter, not harder – message me if you need professional assistance with your resume. 💬
