This month, I’m providing a career management tip-a-day (along with other posts) to help you trigger your own career management activities.

Today’s tip: Update your resume.

Yesterday, in “30 Career Management Tips: Provide your updated resume to your new manager,” I wrote about the importance of providing your new manager with your resume and to use it as the basis of having a career discussion immediately after a transition.

Hard to provide your manager a current resume if you don’t update it, right?

It’s not my intent to provide all the cool resume rules that need to be followed. But I’ll link you to a site that at least tells you the ten timeless mistakes to avoid in writing your resume.

In “10 Ways Your Resume Irks Hiring Managers,” Mary Lorenz provides us the timeless mistakes resume writers STILL make when penning the document that will help them get the job.
