28 Oct Finally I Have Earned The Elite Resume Writing Credential: ACRW
Hiring practices have changed enormously over the last decade as employers gravitate to online postings, resume databases, and automated screening software. Combine these changes with the recent surge in unemployment, and job seekers face a complex and challenging task to create their marketing materials and manage their job search for best results.
Now, I am better prepared than ever to provide job seekers with the powerful tools they need in today’s highly competitive job market. I have completed a rigorous training program and earned the Academy Certified Resume Writer designation – a high-level certification that signifies mastery of best-in-class resume strategies.
Earning the ACRW indicates that a resume writer has successfully completed all components of the Resume Writing Academy, an intensive and comprehensive training program that teaches the following skills and concepts through classroom study, training assignments, independent learning projects, and intense individualized feedback:
- Resume Strategy & Client Positioning
- Resume & LinkedIn Profile Writing Styles, Trends & Techniques
- Cover Letter and Thank-You Letter Writing Styles, Trends & Techniques
- Personal Branding for Resumes
- Resume Formats, Designs & Structures
- English Language & Grammar
My clients are facing steep challenges in the employment market these days, and even after many years in the career field, I wanted to be sure that I was equipping them with the very best strategies and documents. My investment in the Resume Writing Academy and the ACRW means that my clients can enter the job search with confidence, knowing that they have the very best, most powerful, and most up-to-date resumes to accelerate their searches.
The Resume Writing Academy (www.resumewritingacademy.com) is the first comprehensive, strategically focused resume training program that teaches writers of all experience levels how to develop resumes that get noticed and get results. The Resume Writing Academy is recognized for its rigor, high standards, and accomplished graduates.
I have now joined an elite group of more than 100 ACRWs worldwide.
