Kick start the new year with a new career opportunity! Take the first step and upload and/or update your resume on our Career Center.
Here are 5 reasons why you should update your resume even if you're not actively looking for a job.
Highlight your achievements- When you’re in the thick of day-to-day work, it’ s easy to forget how far you’ve come and in which areas you’ve developed. Listing out new skills or big accomplishments allows you to see your own professional growth.
Understand what makes you happy- Look at the different experiences you've had in your career and think what makes you thrive. Do you like a fast-paced environment, working on a team or independently, what is the work culture like? This helps you understand what to look for when you’re searching for that next opportunity.
Recognize your strengths - The more you work on your strengths the happier, more productive in your career you will be. Reviewing your resume allows you to reflect on your strengths so you can find an opportunity that allows you to shine.
Review your resume at a high level- Looking at your resume like a blueprint allows you to see where you'd like to go in your career path. Do you have the skills and experience needed to advance your career? What is the next step to reach that goal?
You will always be ready for that next opportunity- Even if you are a passive job seeker, having your resume updated might allow that perfect opportunity to find you. Employers search the HACE Resume Bank, so don't let them glance over you because your resume is outdated.
