Congratulations to Belinda Amis on taking over the Management of the fantastic new Genesis Port Melbourne facility.

Her departure from the role of State Operations Manager (Victoria) for Goodlife Health Clubs created an opening that was filled by Chris Kemp (congratulations again), who had recently resigned from a regional role with Fitness First.

The National Development Manager for Genesis lured to Fitness First : 10 Mar 2011

Damien Bain had been lured from his post as National Development Manager with Genesis to a position on the Senior Executive Team with Fitness First.

It's been a pleasure dealing with Damien throughout his time at Genesis. I wish him all the best in his new role.

I'm not aware of whether anyone is in line for the NDM role with Genesis but if you fancy yourself as a chance, I can always forward your details directly to the CEO.

At the risk of Paul Taylor overkill, coincidentally Acumotum sent through an ad for a Studio Manager.

Demonstrated experience in fitness management and sales required.

Now that you’re working, you don’t have to think about anything job-search related until the next time you’re looking. Right? Wrong.

It’s understandable that you don’t want to look at your résumé again for as long as possible, but there are genuine benefits to continuing the work you started. Anything can happen - whether in six months or six years from now - that finds you back in the market place.

Here are some tips to keep yourself up-to-date after getting a job:

Continue to update your résumé: Nothing’s worse than starting a new job search and realising that you haven’t touched your résumé since you got your last job. Adding years’ worth of experience to a résumé is no easy task, so avoid this situation by making periodical updates. Add details about your new role and the responsibilities that go along with it. Continue to update it after major accomplishments, such as getting a promotion or receiving an award or accolade. Obviously, you’ll still need to tweak things once you get serious about a new job search, but you’ll be thankful that you have a head start.

Don’t forget about your online profiles: Take the time to update your profiles on your social networks so your connections know of your whereabouts and to keep you fresh in mind for potential employers. As you update your résumé with new accomplishments, do the same to your profiles.

Update your profile on HealthyPeople: By updating your details on HealthyPeople and adding an updated CV every few months you open the door to being informed of opportunities in the future. Whether you’d consider the job or not, it's better to have the choice.

Save your successes: Got a praising email from a client? Received a glowing performance review? Received some promotion in the media? Save all of these accomplishments so you can add them to your portfolio. That way you avoid having to dig through months’ or years’ worth of emails or files to find things to add to your application or to reference during an interview.

Don’t stop networking: Networking is about more than just getting a job; it’s about building relationships with others in your industry and making valuable career connections. If you don’t need a job, now is a great time to pay it forward. Offer to meet with that son of your friend’s uncle who wants to get into your line of business. Volunteer at that industry event. By helping others without asking for anything in return, they’ll be more willing to help you out when you need them down the road.

For the best chance at career progression, ensure your presence online is kept up to date, that your networks are maintained and that your accomplishments are recorded. We don't always get to choose when we're in the job market but can take some control over the impact this has on us.

For a great book on modern day career building, check out The Start Up of You.

Enjoy your week and don't forget to take 5 minutes to update your CV (and then upload to HealthyPeople).

Regards, Dennis Hosking
