The process of building the perfect resume and keeping it intact with the progress of your career with time is an absolute art. Whether employed or unemployed, upon research, it was found out that every candidate owns a resume. One of the major reasons people opt for creating their resumes beforehand is the famous LinkedIn platform, where workforces are created. LinkedIn has proved to be one of the biggest platforms for connecting job seekers with companies based on the candidate’s CV or resume most authentically and reliably.
The impact of COVID-19 on the career timeline of candidates
The epidemic of COVID-19, however, brought a new wave of unemployment in the world, which caused around 54.3 % percent of the people to revise their resumes. This update led to a smaller number of respondents on LinkedIn, ultimately causing a huge disruption in the hiring process. Out of 100 candidates, 66 are already on their way to look for a new job while the rest of them are still working for their current job. Upon surveying, we found out that the reasons why certain people got the jobs that the others were completely denied were the process of building a resume. A resume should not only be suitable for the job that intrigues you, but a resume must always be diverse and one which can adjust for any sort of job.
The benefits of an updated prime brand
As highlighted in this infographic, regular updates of resumes on LinkedIn benefited the candidates as they received more and more job opportunities than the ones who did not find it necessary to update their resumes with time. A resume is the prime brand one creates for himself. It is something he gets recognized for, and therefore, in any case, keeping your brand updated with your evolving career is an absolute win-win.
