International Update Your Resume Month Ends In 8 Days!

Did you know September is International Update Your Resume Month?  Update Your Resume month is brought to you by Career Directors International (CDI), encouraging you to keep this very important job search tool updated at least annually.

When I lost my job I had to search high and low through hard drives and email accounts to find my old resume… one that was at least six years old.  I spent hours looking for that old thing, and finally just went and got a template online to start over.  Oh how I wished I had a current resume – there’s enough stress when you are laid off without having to figure out dates, titles and all the other stuff that goes on your resume.

On the Career Directors International site, where they talk about the Update Your Resume Month, you can find the following articles:
