Just a couple reminders about your resume.

First, you should update your resume at least once a year.  Add your new accomplishments and cull the experiences that are now ancient history.  You should do this just prior to your annual appraisal. It’s a great way to be prepared to discuss the year in a way that showcases your areas of strengths.  If you don’t have to sit for an annual appraisal, updating your resume is still a good practice. Many grants, presentation proposals, requests for testimony, and contracts now require the inclusion of a resume.

Second, if you are looking for a new job or think that you may soon be looking for a new job, update your resume every six months.

Third, if you are searching for a Principal or Assistant Principal job, don’t forget the rule of 100 (first shared with me by one of my mentors, Dr. Richard Hooker).

It takes 100 applications… To get 10 interviews… To get 1 job.

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
