Job Seekers are Encouraged to Take a Proactive Approach and Update Their Resume.

Decatur, IN September 4, 2012 – Career Directors International has proclaimed September the official “Update Your Resume Month. CDI President, Laura DeCarlo, states, “So often people are caught unaware by a surprise job opportunity, layoff, or a pressing life change that requires them to immediately seek work. When job seekers need their resume yesterday it can frequently lead to unnecessary stress and development of an ineffective resume that fails to showcase the breadth of the job seeker’s talents, experience, and accomplishments. By declaring September as the official update month, people will have the opportunity to better control and champion their own futures on their own terms.”

Tammy Shoup of Breakthrough Resume Writing Service further explains, “Unfortunately, it has become common practice for companies to cut costs by downsizing their labor force leaving job seekers who are shocked and unprepared for their future. As a member of CDI, I am dedicated to helping job seekers face an unexpected career change due to job loss or life change.”

Engaging in a job search under any circumstances can be challenging but, with a professionally prepared resume that is keyword-rich and laser-focused, job seekers can have some sense of peace that they can hit the ground running.

If it has been a while since you needed a resume (updated or otherwise), resume styles and job search strategies have changed and an old-school resume will only serve to prolong your job search. As a member of Career Directors International, throughout the month of September Shoup will review your existing resume and provide a brief assessment of what needs to be done to transform it into a stellar document that will secure interviews.
