Who Needs a Resume?

Anybody who works for a living or intends to work for a living should maintain an up-to-date resume. It’s an important part of your professional and academic career, and you never knew when you might need to produce one.

Most people write their first resumes in their teens, generally when applying for their first jobs or when trying to get accepted into a higher education program. If planned well, these resumes can be continuously expanded and updated as your life progresses. Even if you do not intend to apply for a new job in the near future, it pays to have your resume tucked away somewhere to save valuable time in the event that you need to produce a current work history.
