Why Have an Up to Date Resume?

by Susan Reynolds

Even if you池e not necessarily planning on changing jobs:

Because you need to know where you stand! By consulting with a career professional and talking through your career, you値l develop solid confidence in the skills and experience you have developed. You値l approach performance appraisals and promotional opportunities with strength and resolve. You値l be able to combat any negative perceptions that superiors or potential employers might have. You値l negotiate for raises and other forms of compensation because you値l know how to communicate the financial value you bring to the organization. You値l be ready to step up to opportunities that come suddenly and unexpectedly. You値l even impress your bankers, insurers, and financial advisors!

A careful and knowledgeable probe of your history, your preferences, your training & education, your interests, etc. will alert an experienced professional to areas of expertise and transferable skills that you might otherwise miss. You値l learn of other industries and types of organizations that could use your skills. We can tell many stories of professionals who not only were able to engage in profitable conversations with interested new employers, but also be retained by their existing employers for better pay and increased responsibility. Sometimes, by the way, a traditional resume is not the only answer, but instead, an executive profile, marketing brochure, or academic curricula vitae is the better format. All this means growth, and a lot of it, with confidence. And you don稚 even have to be looking for a new job!
