Be Prepared

Kent Nolen

Lately, in the HR Consulting side of my work, I've been surprised by the number of times my clients are dealing with unprepared candidates. When it comes to senior-level positions, big-name companies tend to get a lot of referrals. More often than not, those referrals have to go through the same process as all candidates (that's all about fair treatment, and that's a good thing).

What I'm surprised at, though, is the number of times my client companies are dealing with referred candidates that don't have a current resume.  

Of course, I see this on the other side of the table as well. Many people reach out to me for a resume that was needed, well, yesterday.

Make having a resume – an outstanding, updated resume – a priority. It's your personal marketing tool, and you never know when you'll need it. Plus, being able to produce one quickly is very impressive.
