Update your CV at least once a year...
At the very least, we recommend that you review your CV once per year - and maybe more often if you're constantly learning new skills and taking on new challenges.
If you're in the habit of doing personal reviews on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis, a quick CV update can easily be incorporated into this self-evaluation process.
Annual CV Update: What to Consider
At the end of each year, look back at the previous 12 months and ask yourself...
- Have you mastered any new skills this year?
- Did you overcome any difficult challenges in work?
- Were you promoted?
- Do you hold any qualifications that you didn't hold last year?
If the answer to any of these questions is 'yes' then you should consider updating your CV to include your most recent successes.
