Is Your Resume Outdated?

Resumes are often a law firm’s first glimpse of you, so it is important to make a great first impression.  In the next few blogs, I will share some tips on how to keep your resume from appearing outdated. 

For example, it is a myth that your resume must include every single job experience you ever had.  A resume is your opportunity to highlight experiences that are relevant to the job for which you are applying.  As such, you should carefully select those work experiences which were meaningful and which reflect the skills and abilities needed to perform the job.  Including too many experiences can overshadow the more important ones.  Ask yourself what the experience demonstrates about you and whether it is necessary for this position.
