Today's journal entry is straight from Seth Godin. He says it so well I cannot improve upon it! He is speaking about career management, a topic that I promote with passion by helping people create the foundational documents to proactive career management, the resume and cover letter. Over to Seth:
Can I see your body of work?
Are you leaving behind an easily found trail of accomplishment?
Few people are interested in your resume any more. Plenty are interested in what you've done.
The second thing you'll need to do is regularly note what you produce in a log or find some other way to keep track.
The first thing is more difficult: If the work you do isn't worth collating and highlighting, you probably need to be doing better work.
For those of you who want to know how to track accomplishments, sign up for my free newsletter, and I'll email you my report, "Best Kept Secrets of Successful People," which outlines how you go about this very thing, keeping a log of what you've done - in a meaningful way, perfect for building your next resume update.
