Hi Ligaya,


You can update your resume once in a yr with all the initiatives, skills added and promotions that you got.

Your resume should be a live document. Every time before you send it out, it should reflect the latest information, including new skills/work experience/education.

Whether you're looking for your first job, a better mid-career opportunity, or are ... freshening your resume, update as often as you can

As frequently as possible. Every new skill or accomplishment should be added. Make this a habit. Don't wait until you need an updated resume to start working on it.

I would recommend updating your resume every six months unless you have a change of some kind. If you have learned a new skill set, changed jobs, added education, or added something else like volunteer experience, you should update your resume (and professional profiles) with those details.

FREE TIP: Don't put your address on your resume. It's not needed and can be a safety issue, especially for women. You only need an email address and phone number.

Update it as often as you have new and relevant experience. Sometimes it can be difficult to remember what you've done or accomplished after a long period of time.

Gerard’s Answer

keeping your résumé and profiles updated covers your flanks in a handful of ways:


In the event of an unexpected job loss, it means you can immediately start hunting for a new position.
It makes you look like even more of an awesome candidate to recruiters and prospective employers who might be lurking around the Internet.
It keeps colleagues appraised of your skills, which is particularly useful if you’re the type who takes on freelancing work on a regular basis.

I think it is worthwhile updating your CV when you have new experiences to add or if you need to tailor it to a specific role.
