4-Simple-Ways-to-Update-Your-ResumeEven though it's the end of February, the beginning of a new year is the perfect time to find a new job, or think about making a career change.

We would like to provide you with some tips regarding updating your resume. Here are some quick and easy ways to update your resume. 

1. Correct Contact Information

Life happens, and situations change over time. Did you get a new phone number? Have you recently moved? Do you have a new email address? Make sure that your contact information is correct on your resume. This should be a quick fix. 

There's nothing worse than sending out your resume and it as incorrect contact information on it. After all, how are employers going to contact you for an interview

2. Add Any New Work Experience

Have you started a new job? Have you gained new responsibilities in your current role? Add any new work experience, and the tasks/responsibilities required of the role, to your resume. 

Even if you're not looking for a new job right now, this will save you some time down the line if you decide to apply to jobs in the future. 

3. Check for Spelling Errors or Formatting Issues

Check for any spelling errors, or formatting issues, within your resume. You can get a friend or family member to proofread your resume for spelling errors. It's a good idea to get an extra set of eyes to look over your resume before you send it out.

A resume that's full or spelling/grammatical errors or formatting issues will probably be discarded by an employer immediately. It's best to have a resume that's free of spelling errors and formatting issues. 

4. Market Your Resume to the Job at Hand

Have you found a job that looks like it's perfect for you? Market your resume to the job that you're applying for. Use any keywords that you find in the job advertisement (as long as they are applicable to your skills/abilities). 

Market your resume to the job at hand, but make sure that you are being honest and remaining truthful. 

The more that you market your resume to the job that you're interested in, the better your chances of landing an interview.
