Create A ‘Brag Folder’ In Your Inbox For Easy Resume Updates

When you do need to send out your resume, recalling all your achievements at your current job can be tough. That’s why The Daily Muse suggests keeping a “Brag Folder” in your email inbox where you save any praiseworthy message.

Every time a client sings your praises, a colleague gushes over your contributions to the latest team project, or your boss asks you to take on a new responsibility, go ahead and drag that email on over to the folder.

Even if every compliment or activity isn’t necessarily resume-worthy, scrolling through a folder full of flattering messages may get your gears turning on other achievements. Plus, knowing there’s one place to look makes the entire process feel much less daunting.

Of course, you shouldn’t be waiting for layoffs to update your CV, but having those achievements in one place will make it easy to rock your resume.
