Update Your Resume
Right now is a great time to review your resume to ensure all information is current and appropriate. An updated resume will allow you to quickly jump on new job opportunities while the competition spends their time revamping their recent achievements.
When reviewing your resume, consider the following:
- Has your title or role changed?
- What did you accomplishments this year?
- Can you add any new skills or relevant classes/courses to your resume?
- Are your references current? Is their contact information up-to-date?
Update Your LinkedIn Profile
While updating your resume, don’t forget to update your LinkedIn profile. If your information is current, then take this opportunity to spice up your LinkedIn headline and summary.
Volunteer and Learn a New Skill
