Everyone should have an up-to-date resume. It's important to have resume that's ready to go even you aren't actively job search. You never know when you might need it for job searching if you lose your job or if a new opportunity presents itself.
Certified Professional Resume Writer Martin Buckland reminded me that even Santa has a resume. Martin was the lucky person who got the job of writing the resume for Santa:
Respected, deadline-driven professional with a global perspective, renowned for infinite generosity. Project and solutions-oriented, patient and tolerant listener, gains the trust and respect of countless stakeholders located across 24 time zones. Child-friendly and considerate, exudes energy and confidence, extends a warm welcome to persons of all faiths and nationalities. Multi-tasker, excellent time management skills, strives for operational excellence in a fast-paced environment. Brand conscious, constantly sees red and white, devises and executes creative marketing strategies to deliver dreams.
In addition to his resume, Santa is taking advantage of all the online resources he can to promote himself. He's got a VisualCV, with a great photo of his co-worker Rudolph, and a LinkedIn Profile, too.
