Back Up and Protect Your Resume

resume backup The 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 don't see when this occurs. I like to have it set like this, so if a problem develops, I can see why it happened. As I sat watching the computer boot up, the various items were loading, and the system checked them. Then, unexpectedly, the hard drive check failed. Great! Now what? I asked myself. The full impact of what just happened didn't fully 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 created yesterday by the computer. 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 back the way it was except for a few tweaks.

backup Now, what would have happened if I didn't have a backup? I would have lost my data, including my resume, and would have needed to reinstall everything. After that, I would have to customize all the preference settings for Windows and all of my programs. That would have been a very time-consuming undertaking. In a similar scenario, this could have happened to my smartphone or tablet. I could have dropped it, and broke 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 back up your data to avoid losing it. An external hard drive or a cloud system are common solutions. Of course, it is best to speak to an IT professional to have your technical requirements evaluated and remedied.
