The importance of an effective, well-written and user-friendly resume canít be overstated. The same is true for keeping your resume up to date. You never know when your situation may change. A promotion may come along at work, someone in your network may share an awesome opportunity or the economy can change.
If one of these situations occurs, having an outdated resume forces you to scramble to build your most valuable personal marketing piece. Your resume is usually the first impression for a potential employer and on average an employer scans a resume for 30 seconds before deciding on an interview.
