Back Up and Protect Your ResumeThe other day I turned on my computer, at first everything appeared to be normal. I have my computer set to display the BIOS as it loads. Most people wouldn't see this occur, I like to have it like this so if a problem occurs I can see what happened. As I sat watching the computer boot up, the various line items were loading and being checked. Then, unexpectedly the hard drive check failed. Great! Now what? I asked myself. Initially the full impact of what just happened didn't really hit me yet.
I began to think to myself how am I going to do the work that I was planning to do today? So, long story short I ended up getting a new hard drive and proceeded to restore the operating system using a backup image that a while back I set the computer to automatically create. It was still a hassle as I had to replace the drive, boot from the Windows Boot CD and then restore the latest backup image. So everything was basically back the way it was except for a few tweaks.
Now what would have happened if I didn't have a backup? I would have lost my personal data including my resume and would have needed to reinstall everything. After that, I would have needed to go through and customize all the preference settings for Windows and all of my programs. That would have been very time-consuming. In a similar scenario, this could have happened to my smartphone or tablet. I could have dropped it, breaking it losing my files that way too.
What if this had happened to you? What if you had a job interview that morning and your resume was on that failed hard drive or broken mobile device and you lost it forever? Sure, you can rewrite it, but it originally took you a good bit of your time to think of all of your past jobs, past schooling, how you wrote it using resume keyword optimization techniques and more.
It is important to have a system in place that will allow you to backup your data to avoid losing it. An external hard drive or some sort of cloud system are common solutions. Of course it is best to speak to an IT professional to have your technical needs assessed and remedied.

This is just a situation I recently dealt with. Until it occurs to your device you may not even think about it until it is too late. Luckily I have been using and building computers for a long time so I am aware of how important it is to have computer and resume backup systems in place.
