5 Ways to Prepare for the Future with IAIP

Christine Chandler Tillett, PHR, CLP

As an IAIP member you have access to many benefits that can enhance your career and help you prepare for the future. You might not be aware of one of these benefits - the IAIP Career Center. The Career Center is a space for members to post jobs available at their company, search for jobs and post their resume.

Posting your resume is not about searching for your next opportunity, it's about being prepared for when the next opportunity finds you. As a human resource professional, I would like to share why you should keep your resume updated. In these unprecedented times, taking a proactive approach to your future is more important than ever.

1.Track your Brand - Keeping your resume current will help you understand your personal brand and track your career progression. Even if you're happy with your current situation, update your resume to reflect on your achievements.

2. Refine your Goals - An updated resume gives you an undeniable snapshot of your achievements, but also reflects what you still need to accomplish. Once you know where you have been, you can refine your goals for future growth, and create a road map for improvement.

3. Share your Expertise - Your updated resume can further define a secondary career path. Look for ways to share your experience as a subject matter expert by speaking at conferences, writing industry articles, or signing up to be a mentor.

4. Prepare to be Rewarded - Tracking your experience will keep you prepared for applying for an IAIP award or scholarship.

5. Be Ready for Change - You may be blindsided by a layoff, but you'll have confidence because you are prepared for your next opportunity.

The IAIP Non-Dues Revenue Task Force is asking you to update your resume and post to the IAIP Career Center. All members who upload their resume before June 1st will be entered into an opportunity to win a downloadable CLP self-study course of your choice!
