Q: Why Is a Strong, Updated Resume so Important?

Here’s why you should always have a strong, up-to-date resume ready.

Why do we have resumes?

Resumes are a strong, up-to-date way to promote yourself. Think of it as a billboard or commercial. More importantly, think of it as your brand. Your resume should always be ready for the next step. 

When talking about resumes, it’s also important to discuss interviewing. A lot of people think of it as interviewing for the next company, but it can also mean taking the next step in your current company, so your resume should be updated no matter what. Imagine having an objective to become a director or vice president and needing to list your skills and what you can accomplish in the future. Again, your resume is about promoting yourself and your brand. 

For the majority of people, taking the next step in their career means doing so internally at their same company, but unfortunately, many of them don’t keep an updated resume when contemplating this step. Keep an updated resume for your current and future employer. 

Resumes are a strong, up-to-date way to promote yourself.
