Whether or not you’re looking for a new job or a promotion, it’s essential to have an up-to-date CV and to keep a long list of your key achievements.
And when I say achievements, I mean the tangible results you achieved that saved time, saved money, made money, saved lives, improved something by x percent and so on particularly in the last two or three years.
No one cares if you ‘led a global team of 300 people’ because you could be absolutely useless at it. It’s your achievements that will tell the story of your brilliance.
You never know when your ideal role might come up – and if you only see the ideal role 24 hours or so before the deadline date for application you’re going to kick yourself.
So bite the bullet and get it done.
