What is UYRW you might ask? UYRW stands for Update Your References Week and May holds a unique opportunity for professionals, especially those immersed in a job search. May 1st through the 7th is International Update Your References Week, a great chance to re-engage with former colleagues to help support each others current or future job hunts.
As professionals move from one job to the next, we sometimes loose track of them and thereby the chance to exchange colleague-based references, which are often heavily weighted by hiring managers in their evaluations when skill sets of candidates are equivalent.
