Rule 13: Wait at least 6 months before updating resume

leave a comment »

I don’t remember why I have this rule, it may be because there was a time I wanted to be private about changing jobs to keep a certain former employer from being nosey rosie.  Granted I don’t live that exciting of a life, they most likely did not care and this was just all in my head.

This rule is now about respecting the former employer and myself.  To give each party the time to heal any wounds and to make peace with the separation.  I have always felt work is like a relationship, as long as the employment is beneficial to both parties it is ok to continue the relationship but once it no longer benefits a party it is wise to move on.  With a few exceptions this has been the case during my career.
