Dedicate 7 Hours For Healthier Finances – Hour 6

The goal: Dedicate 1 hour a day, for 7 days, and improve the health of our finances.

Hour 6 (00:00 – 60:00)

Create a Career Portfolio

Locate, organize, copy, and store important education-related documents, including diplomas and certifications.

Locate, organize, copy, and store important work-related documents, including commendations, awards, and acknowledgments.

Locate, organize, copy, and store important community-related documents, including civic membership information and awards.

Create or update your resume.  Include relevant information about educational achievements, community involvement, and work history.

Get to know people who are working in your field of interest.  Consider using a site like linkedin, and use it to establish or expand your network of relationships.

Over the course of this week, I’ll write one more article about improving the health of our finances.  Each article should take just a few minutes to read, and the steps outlined should take about an hour to do.  Depending on the health of your finances, you might be able to breeze through the steps in just minutes – or it might take you much longer, if things are in need of repair.  My goal, however, is to keep the steps to a minimum, and to make them as easy-to-follow as is possible.

Consider Hour 6.  If you will take the time to do all of the steps outlined above, you will know where your important education- work- and community-related documents are, you will have updated your resume, and you will have begun to connect with like-intentioned people. And, you will have accomplished all of these things, in about an hour!

If you haven’t done so, be sure to subscribe to No Credit Needed, via email or RSS, and make sure you catch hour 7.

  1. In the past I’ve updated my resume only when the need arose. My plan going forward is to update it when things actually happen – significant achievements, awards, etc. That way I won’t forget the details, and I can keep documentation in a specific resume file. LinkedIn definitely reminds me to keep my info current.

  2. Having a career portfolio is must in today’s job market. I read that the average length of time spent with a company now is 3.2 years. No more long term 30+ years and retiring with a nice watch. Personally I was with my previous employer for 6 years and now I am on my 4th month with my current employer.

    I wish I had stockpiled all my achievements for the past 6 years instead of relying on my brain when getting my resume together. I vowed not to make that mistake again and have began to document all my achievements going forward and revamping my resume any time something new comes up.

    Great series!
