Melbourne, FL (PRWEB) August 31, 2004
This September marks the fourth annual International Update Your Resume Month, officially proclaimed by the Professional Resume Writing and Research Association. During the entire month, PRWRA members will dedicate their efforts to boosting industry awareness and encouraging the public to update their own resumes.
September is the perfect time to start a new approach to career care-taking. While children are embarking on starting the new school year, adults should also be taking stock of their professional attributes and career value by updating their resumes.
What we think of as a life print, or guideline for career development, will provide a proactive approach toward meeting unforeseen market and company changes, in reevaluating personal worth, and in preparing to obtain the next step in career growth. Too often job seekers avoid taking this crucial step until the last minute, when they need their resume yesterday. A well-crafted resume takes time and research, and Update Your Resume Month is a perfect reminder to be prepared for new opportunities and to better champion the future.
PRWRA and its members will be available to local and national media to answer questions and offer expertise about resumes, cover letters, job interviews, job search strategies, and career change. And since resume writing is considered a recession-proof industry, PRWRA can also answer questions on what it takes to become a Professional Resume Writer, encouraging others to join the profession.
Laura DeCarlo, is President of the PRWRA, a professional association made up of resume, writers, career coaches, job developers, recruiters, and other career specialists in 18 countries who are committed to Âprofessionals empowering professionals.Â
The Professional Resume Writing and Research Association administers education and testing to guarantee quality and consistency among its members in the areas of resume writing, career coaching, career research, and career web portfolio development.
