#SLAtalk: New Year, New You: Enhance Your Resume or CV!
This #SLAtalk Twitter chat will take place Friday, 31 January, 1:30 p.m. EST.
Some good professional habits to maintain are to always carry business cards and have an elevator pitch at the ready. Another is to frequently update your resumé or CV. Not only is the latter activity a good way to prepare for an unexpected opportunity, but it can also help you take stock of your career path. Where have you been? Where are you going…and do you have the knowledge, tools, and resumé to go there?
