arrow 6  Be ahead of the competition. Send your resume among the first candidates.  There are few job openings and too many applications. Sending your application late, might decrease the possibilities to be well noticed.

arrow 6  Having your résumé regularly updated makes it easier to adjust it to different job postings so that you can efficiently sell “the fit” between the company’s requirements and yourself.
