September - Update Your Resume Month
Because you never know when you’ll need to use your résumé, the month of September has been designated “Update Your Résumé Month” as an annual reminder for job seekers to review their résumés and LinkedIn profiles.
The members of the Resume Writer’s Council of Arizona (RWCA) will be on-site providing FREE resume updates. They are free because part of our mission is to give back. You can trust it, because we are professional resume writers and writing resumes is what we do all day, every day.
Come out and network with other professionals, get some refreshments, and let’s work together to build / update your resumes. Our goal is to help YOU get back to work. Additional resources will be shared with you during the event so be sure to come be part of it.
Here are some guidelines for updating your résumé:
• Check your contact information. A new piece of contact data to be sure to include is your customized LinkedIn URL to link your résumé to your LinkedIn profile.
• Update your education, training, and certifications. Have you taken any classes in the last year? Earned a degree? Pursued a certification? Attended a job-related seminar?
• Is your work experience up to date? Need to add your current position? Now is also the time to review your accomplishments and make sure they are reflected in your résumé.
