Why is that helpful?

Easy. It is downloadable.

It can be imported into an applicant tracking system so that you can be “found” again in the future whena new position materializes.

After all, the person who gets ahead isn’t always the smartest or work the hardest . . . although those are great qualities to have. people get ahead by remaining alert to opportunity whether they are internal or external to their firm.
