Courtney's interviews got me thinking. Do you keep your Resume/CV updated or do you end up starting all over again when you apply for another job?

How many interviews have you gone in for where you HAVEN'T gotten the job?

I am so horrible about updating it. Once I get a job, I'm like "Whew, now I can forget about this stupid thing!" It's just so much work customizing it for each job, writing a cover letter. I'll be very glad to have this job hunt over and done with.

I got 5 interview offers, applied to ~50 jobs, I turned down 2 due to commute or salary under my price point. Went to one that I didn't think was a good fit so turned down a 2nd interview offer, and am now in the later stages of 2 potentials. Still on the fence, as you'll see from my FB post lol

It's so different than when I was interviewing last year. For the two serious ones, they've had me there for 2-4 hours speaking to everyone from potential manager to director to janitor. When I interviewed for my current job, I had one with my current boss, and then about a week later, one with her supervisor, about an hour each.

If anyone's looking, I recommend Glassdoor.com for salary ranges, and CareerBuilder.com b/c they have a new feature so you can see the demographics of who else applied.

I do not keep it updated. I got the first job I interviewed for, and it was a half-assed resume that I typed up in 5 minutes.
