Make It Work: Update Your Resume, Please

Updating your resume is on par with doing your taxes and cleaning your bathroom — a task that is unpleasant and irritatingly time-consuming, but absolutely necessary every once in a while. Chances are, your resume hasn’t been updated since the last time you were looking for work.

I’ve made Thanksgiving dinner at my house for the past three years, eschewing the hell of Grand Central on Thanksgiving eve for staying quietly in my own home.
