Just as the time changes twice a year, we generally change the batteries in the smoke alarms located throughout our homes. Unfortunately, people don’t update their resumes as often as they change those batteries. The new year is usually when most people – 60% of people, by some accounts – update their resumes. Ideally, though, it should at least be a bi-annual task.

Why Update?

Keeping your update current is empowering. It’s a reminder that you are the sole person responsible for how successful your career is. The dream legal career might be moments from knocking on your door and if your resume isn’t current, you’ll find yourself scrambling to bring it up to date. This, of course, leaves a lot of room for error. Your resume is by far your most vital marketing tool, besides yourself, of course. Your resume is an introduction, of sorts. And it’s far more important than you might think.

As important as our resumes are, too many of us dread it because we simply don’t know what to include and what to leave off. This results in procrastination and before long, we’ve forgotten dates of major accomplishments and other important and impressive goals we’ve met.
