10 Reasons Not To Delete Your Resume After Being Employed

28.10.2013 155

After successfully passing the job interview a large number of employees are asking: «Is it worth deleting the resume after being employed or is it better to wait?». To remove or keep the personal data available to the employers is a private matter of the job seeker. However, the public resume has some advantages and can really help to create a career, especially if you are not quite sure about the place of work.

There is no need to recreate resume

This variant is suitable for those who have doubts about the company or the employer. Often there are situations when a new employee is not satisfied with some of the circumstances (an inappropriate level of wages, uninteresting professional responsibilities), and he/she was forced to resign from the company in the nearest future. In this case, the public resume simplifies the job search process and save time.

Opportunity to find extra job

Many employees, who work on the main profession, are looking for the ways to earn additional income in the form of part-time or remote employment in their free time. Resumes that you have decided not to delete with the indication of the desired work schedule can help to find an employer who will be in need of your professionalism. A good addition to this kind of work is the acquisition of a valuable experience and the improving of personal qualities and skills.

The chance to check the professional demand

The public resume gives the opportunity to assess properly your professional demand among the employers. Try to add the post that you have received recently to the section "Experience". Perhaps the latest place of work and new responsibilities will play a decisive role in the choice among other candidates, and soon you will get a better job offer both in the material and career aspect. Think about how you can make your resume more attractive: take a self-education, visit the training sessions, seminars or advanced training courses.

Note that such a resume may cause a negative reaction to your management because some HR-specialists of the company constantly monitor job sites.

Assistance in finding the maximum level of wages

Resume that you have decided not to delete will help to find the wages for which employers are willing to pay for your skills. Try to increase the desired level of income and wait for the reaction of employers. If an adequate salary increase gives good results in the form of feedback and job offers, you may think about – maybe is it necessary to hold negotiations with the management of the company? In any case, such a check would be very informative.

Way to find the job of your dream

More than half of employees are dissatisfied with their current job because of the huge number of reasons. Someone complains about a bad team or improper work schedule while others are willing to change their profession. That is why the resume can be left public in order to find the position that is fully suitable for all desirable criteria. Of course, the chance of finding such a job is rather small, but is it worth to miss such an opportunity?

The method of reinsurance in case of unforeseen circumstances

Each employee has a chance to face with the unexpected and unpleasant work situations - the sudden dismissal or reduction, the elimination of the enterprise, the bankruptcy of the organization. The global economic crisis may have a negative impact on almost anyone, even on a seemingly successful company. In this case, the public resume can provide a decent service - perhaps in the case of an emergency job search you will have some good job suggestions from the employers which is not too late to be responded.

The comparison with other candidates

Resume may help to know how much you are competitive in the labor market. Comparing your professional skills, achievements or experience with other job seekers of your specialization, we can understand not only the strengths and weaknesses of your resume, but also what points need to be improved. Such a comparison often encourages the employees for further development and self-improvement.

The possibility to learn labor market trends

Many professionals, in particular those who hold leadership or administrative position, need to be aware of the current trends in the labor market. View jobs, especially of large enterprises, helps to know what professions are the most needed and demanded, what the average salaries are offered by the companies to their employees, what the main demands of employers are the most relevant. Such knowledge is especially valuable for those whose duty is to find personnel.

Assessment of the activity of the competitors

Public summary gives you the access to the control of other companies - periodic monitoring of vacancies and viewing the basic requirements and responsibilities can give even superficial, but the necessary assessments of competitors. Usually the most popular specialty that deals with the analysis of the market and the competitive environment is a marketer, and in this case, the resume may act as an additional helper method.

Temporary employment is not a reason to delete the summary

There are situations when, due to the financial or other problems, the job seeker urgently needs to find a job, so he/she agrees to the non-permanent projects or to not very attractive offers. Temporary employment (even with the official registration according to the Nigerian Labor Act) is not an obstacle to post and to delete the old resume. Moreover, it is even desirable to take the initiative and look for a more suitable position with better working conditions.
