Remember when you started your last job search campaign regretting that you'd let your resume and network get stale?
Now that you've landed that new job, don't let things slip. Here are a few reminders of things you should continue doing even when you're happily employed somewhere.
1. RESUME: Keep that resume current. As you have accomplishment stories, add them to your resume.
2. NEW COURSES AND CERTIFICATIONS: Make sure you add these to the resume.
3. LINKEDIN: Have you updated your profile with your new job? Are you staying active? Remember, just 5 minutes a couple times a week will keep your profile ranking up.
4. NETWORK: Are you staying engaged with your network? Don't let those connections you built during your job search go stale. Remember to go to your notifications section of LinkedIn and congratulate people for anniversaries, new jobs and birthdays.
Invest a little time on a regular basis. If/when the time comes to look for a new job, you'll be prepared and won't have to play catch up.
