A Friendly Reminder That Now Is the Perfect Time to Revisit Your Resume

For most of us in the professional world, having a premium-quality resume or CV is table stakes.

But freelancers have long considered themselves exempt from this rule.

If you’re a freelancer, rethink this philosophy. For one thing, having an updated resume on LinkedIn will help you get found.

But more importantly, taking the time to update your resume might give you some new insight into your experience and expertise. As you write, you may realize that you have a lot of experience in a particular industry that you could leverage to get similar jobs.

This is particularly important in a time when work is shifting for just about everyone. The way you pitch yourself can make the difference between becoming irrelevant and becoming irreplaceable.

Freelancers can fill an important niche in this transitional job market time — if they play their marketing cards right.
