Quick Tip: Update Your CV

Your CV is your key to getting your foot in the door and finding your perfect job. Too many people only update their CV when they're job hunting. This is a big mistake. 

Everytime you do some type of professional development, such as attend a workshop or conference, give a workshop, get published, join an affiliation, complete a short course or masters degree, you need to update your CV. In addition, if you get new responsiblities at work like having to give placement tests to students or create a curriculum, that should go on your CV as well.

Even if you don't do any professional development or get new responsibilities at work you should still take your CV out once a year and update it to see if there's anything you can add or info that you should take away. There are lots of great guides out there with CV tips and tricks to help you write an amazing CV. While you're at it, don't forget to update your cover letter as well!
