We are excited to announce our partnership with Corporate Gray to help support their March 16 Virtual Military-Friendly Job Fair. Corporate Gray has been connecting veterans with employers nationwide since 1994. Their Job Fairs, website, and Career Transition Book "The Military to Civilian Transition Guide" are great resources for all veterans.
In light of this partnership, we wanted to highlight the importance of updating your resume.
Updating your resume is one of the most crucial things you can do for your career. Whether you're actively searching for a new job or not, keeping your resume current can help you stand out in a crowded job market, position yourself for career growth, and prepare for unexpected job opportunities.
In today's job market, competition for desirable positions is often fierce. Employers receive hundreds or even thousands of resumes for a single job opening, and many of these applicants have similar qualifications and experience. A well-crafted, up-to-date resume can help you stand out from the crowd and catch the attention of potential employers. The Purepost Passport is automatically generated in a highly professional format which you can download to your desktop and easily upload to the Corporate Gray database.
An updated resume allows you to highlight your most recent accomplishments and achievements, providing hiring managers with a clear picture of your current skills and abilities. Using the Purepost skills translator on your entire work history will help you understand those skills and talk about them in terms recruiters can recognize. Additionally, keeping your resume up-to-date shows that you're serious about your career and willing to put in the effort to keep your skills and experience relevant.
Even if you're not actively looking for a new job, updating your resume can help you position yourself for career growth. As you gain new skills, take on new responsibilities, or complete additional training or education, make sure to add these accomplishments to your resume. This can help demonstrate your value to your current employer and increase your chances of being considered for promotions or new opportunities within your organization. These additional details about your career are easy to showcase in the Purepost Passport.
Updating your resume also allows you to take a critical look at your career path and goals. As you reflect on your experience and accomplishments, you may discover areas where you want to focus your professional development or areas where you want to gain additional experience. This information can help you plan your career trajectory and set goals for the future. Purepost Passport holders report that the resume builder helped them discover their strengths.
In today's job market, it's not uncommon to receive a job offer out of the blue. Whether it's a former colleague reaching out with an exciting new opportunity or a recruiter who stumbled across your profile on LinkedIn, unexpected job opportunities can arise at any time. By keeping your resume up-to-date, you'll be prepared to take advantage of these opportunities and move quickly if needed. Check back on Corporate Gray every once in a while to ensure your profile is complete.
