The tip comes from Michael Judge of Arts Council England:
f you have uploaded a CV at an agency, make sure you make some changes, even just a few tweaks every couple of weeks – most agencies will only deal with the ones that show as NEW in the last two weeks.
While the advice is pitched at arts graduates (in the narrow sense), it’s a useful reminder for anyone who is trying to get their work noticed. We’ve noted before that you should regularly update your resume even if you’re happy in your job, and the principle is even more important if you’re not employed.
