Do you think your resume is average or just ok?  Hvae you even thought about your resume??

Leaving your resume hanging to dry is probably not a good idea.  “Some tech pros update their résumés and profiles every time they learn a new skill or accomplish something notable; done often enough, it Becomes a habit,” states Dice staff.

There are a few instances when you can update your resume.

The obvious one: When you leave a job for another.

Two:  You learn a new skill

Three:  You finished a project

The point of a resume is citing your accomplishments and giving the specifics: what you did, and how you did it.

“In today’s job market, with lay-offs and downsizing, being unemployed for a few months is typical. If you’ve been job-hunting longer than three months, try to find a volunteer, part-time or temporary position within your field. Register with a temp agency—an employer may have a short-term project requiring additional staff, but would rather not hire full-time or permanent engineers [who also have to be paid benefits],”  advises Lisa Dickter, associate director for Career Consultants Carnegie Mellon’s Career and Professional Development Center, Pittsburgh, PA.
