Having a clear sense of your journey will help you make smart short-term and long-term plans for your career.
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.
If you have an updated resume you can send out quickly, you’ll recover more quickly after a layoff and have less to stress about.
Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst, as the saying goes.
It’s a sad fact, but you never know when your resume might come in handy.
Having one that’s up-to-date will help you hit the ground running if you ever do need to look for alternative work.
If you are working or planning to leave work at some point, you need to gather the information you think is necessary and include it in there to show your contribution to the role.
It helps to go back and think about what you have learnt from this experience.
Ask yourself what difference you made, what was the result and why it matters.
By keeping your resume up-to-date, you can see how you’ve grown even from a few months ago.
One of the keys to happiness, impact and career development is understanding yourself.
