This week, I updated my resume in anticipation of the possible reduction in force. Not only did I update it, but I removed a lot of old technologies and went with a more streamlined resume. My previous resume was more like Curriculum Vitae format with five pages of details and now is down to a two page overview resume.
Within a day, I had four phone calls. Moral of the story: the format, style, and keywords can make a huge difference in helping you formulate a strategic plan for your next position. This is essential to maximizing your opportunities. I hope this helps so you on your journey. Enjoy.
