I was talking to my colleague, Dawn Bugni last night on Twitter and I was telling her that I was editing and rewriting some of my older blog posts. She was laughing at me because I already have a large amount of new content and now I am going backwards.
This blog is now two years old. Posts I loved when I hit publish can use a face-lift. I’ve changed graphic strategies, using Flickr photos tied to the content of the post.
Then there’s the actual post content. When I reread it, I often find myself cutting paragraphs or words, editing, or rewriting to clarify and tighten the writing.
You know what? I do the same thing with resumes I wrote a few years back. I edit, rewrite, change the formatting, tighten the focus on the value proposition and accomplishments.
Resumes and job search marketing strategies have changed dramatically in the last few years. To think that you don’t need to re-evaluate your marketing materials (resume, cover letters, references… LinkedIn profile, Executive Bio, Project Profile, and more) may mean the difference in whether you are the one offered the job.
Have you taken a close look at that aging resume? Perhaps you need to give it a face-lift!
