The other day we had layoffs at our workplace. A few people I know were asked to leave. I assisted one of my colleagues to revise his resume. And soon I was getting 2/3 resumes a day to look at. I was happy to assist them. What I found though was that their resumes were out of date. Some even worked for about 20 years in our company. they never had to do their resumes.
In a global economy, no one is safe, no job is secured. automation, robotics, shifting priorities, competition, regulation. You name a reason, for which our job security is at the bottom. The only thing we can ensure though is that we get a replacement job somewhere. Your resume is the first impression that you can create a potential new workplace.
