A lot of people forget how great it is to have a great work history for reasons beyond just making more money than you currently do. When you have a great curriculum vitae, it means more than just a better job and more money. It also means that you’ve got a great career you can look at it and look back on with pride in your work.
Having a great resume starts out with a great career. When you work hard and you work with a plan behind you, great things tend to happen in your life. As your work history begins to improve, your life overall tends to get better as well. With time, you can start to clarify both where you’ve been in the past and where you’re going in the future. The future grows out of the past, just like the seeds you plant can turn into mighty crops you can live on.
When you have your past and some of your future firmly planted in your mind, you can do a lot of things. You can get the job of your dreams, and not just for a paycheck and benefits. That’s the thing about having a successful career. When your career is genuinely successful, it stops being about the money and starts being about really doing something constructive in this world. So every time you consider your CV, remember that it’s built and rebuilt by every significant career move you make in life.
