The number one mistake job seekers make in their search is updating their #resume first.
Far too many #jobseekers struggle with frustration, anxiety, and writer's block trying to update their resume. It's not that you don't have any significant accomplishments to highlight; it's that you haven't assessed the #value you have to offer in the #marketplace.
Instead of updating your resume, the first thing you should do to reduce your time from search to hire is to take an inventory.
Here are a few questions to help you get started:
➡ What have I learned about myself during my time in this role?
➡ What new skills have I developed in this role?
➡ What projects or tasks have I contributed to during my time within this organization?
➡ What is the value that I have consistently delivered to this organization?
➡ What about this company, position, or work no longer aligns with my values and the expectations I have set for my career?
The answers to these questions make updating your resume a less frustrating process and aid in #networking. The resume should be a marketing document that speaks directly to the problems you solve, the value you deliver, and the skills you have to offer.
