It is amazing to me how professionals who are sharply focused on their careers and work incredibly hard to succeed make a poor impression when it comes to their resumes.  I’ve seen everything from typographical and grammatical errors and terrible formatting to an overall poor structure, resulting in a document that is difficult if not impossible to understand. When a hiring manager or I see a resume with these flaws (and we do so with shocking regularity), it immediately raises a question about the quality of the candidate; obviously this person is careless, and that’s a bad sign.  It is never too soon to have your resume updated and ready to present.  Regardless of how happy you are in your job, the call for a new opportunity can come at any time, and it is critical that your resume be up-to-date and professional in every respect, or it may end up in the reject pile.
