Q- I plan on getting my next job through someone I know. Why do I need to have my resume ready when I already have an "in"?
A- Great question! I've worked with countless people in the same position. Some were getting interviews because they had a close friend or family member as their "in". They all had ONE thing in common- they all needed to have a resume to apply. That's one reason why having your resume ready is absolutely key.
Also- you never know if you'll get that position, or if you do, how it will work out. Or something better might come along. It's in your best interests to ALWAYS have a world class resume ready to go at a moments notice!
Bottom line- make sure your resume is always up to date because you never know what can happen!
If an opportunity came up today- do you have a resume ready to go?
