Once a year, do something different for you.
It’s time. Yes, time to do that clean-up of your home. That’s normal you say. But what about your career? When was the last time you did something about it? Have you taken the time to look at you? If an opportunity showed up today, would you be ready? Hmmm…no worries, we got you covered. Here are 3 ways to help you freshen up your resume and get you ready for that next move.
Get rid of old data. Ever looked at your resume and wondered now when was that? It’s a sure indication of how often we look at our personal information included on our resume. You may have changed jobs. You may have changed positions in the same organization. Update it. Yes, do it.
2.You Aced It!
Learnt a new software program? Participated in professional development? New certification or recently graduated? Add it! That’s the whole purpose. To learn and impress decisions makers that you are able to ace the new opportunity.
Turn your mundane job responsibilities into achievements. Take a look at what you have achieved. What did your manager last commend you for? Did you change or simplify a process that increased productivity? Did you redesign a program that saved cost? What about a suggestion you made that positively impacted the bottom-line? Reflect on the good and expose it!
The above are just a few ideas to help you clean things up in your career. Create that fresh start. Once it’s done, don’t stop there. Add it to your LinkedIn profile. You never know what’s in store for you. Need help? Let’s connect.
