Urgent career advice: should I send a more recent resume

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Oct 08, 2011 9:49 pm

If I've just interviewed with a bunch of firms, and received a no from some of them. Is it a good idea for me to send them my more recent resume which includes things that I've been involved in this semester? Will this help? Could it hurt?

If you're asking if you should send a more recent resume to a firm that's already dinged you- no, don't do that.

No not to the ones that dinged me, but the ones that haven't responded yet

If you've done something legitimately noteworthy, then sure, why not? If you have just been doing something in say, the democrat/republican club, fed society, a cultural group, student government or something silly like that, well, that's not really anything they'll care about IMO.

If you're just looking to keep yourself in the mix, a simple call to reiterate your interest is probably enough.
