September is Update Your Resumé Month. It is a good time to annually review and freshen up your resumé. When I was an actor, a long time ago, I would freshen my resumé on a regular basis as I was always adding shows and prioritizing which shows I wanted seen by those holding an audition (there was only so much space on that 8″ x 10″ piece of paper and I was a busy actor). In those pre-word-processing days I would actually retype (on a manual typewriter no less) a new version to suit a particular audition goal. Yes children before computers, I had to walk a mile, uphill in both directions, to get a new resumé.
As I am currently job-hunting I will soon be meeting with a professional company to punch up my resumé and help focus my search. Even if you are not job-hunting it may be a good time to review and renew your resumé this month. Hey, you never know when it will come in handy.
