9 Reasons to Have Your Resume On-the-Ready

It’s painful to watch a job posting suddenly vanish when you don’t have a resume.

But it can be equally painful to realize you’ve disqualified yourself from other hot opportunities too.

What am I talking about?

Here’s how not having your resume on-the-ready hurts you:

📄When you’re in the C-Suite and your “Executive Platform” needs deep background

📄When you want to compete for a promotion within and your boss is waiting

📄When you’ve already accepted the job and HR calls you “for their files”

📄When you want to go back to school and your college application demands an attachment

📄When acceptance into a lucrative professional organization needs to know you’re legit

📄When you want a seat on a coveted board and you have no pitch

📄When you’ve been asked to speak at a conference and there’s no marketing material

📄When your business is out of money and the bank is holding up the loan approval

📄When that huge Request for Proposal mandates profiles of all the team members

Those are 9 reasons to have your resume on-the-ready.

Having an updated and on-demand resume is the smart, professional thing to do.
