    Resume & Profile E-Summit:
    Master Lessons in Writing Executive Resumes & LinkedIn Profiles

    Session Instructors: Wendy Enelow & Marie Zimenoff

    The session will be recorded and all registrants will receive access to the materials, live session, and recording. Qualifies for 2 CEUs.

    Learning to write executive resumes and LinkedIn profiles is MORE than just being a great writer! You must understand what these clients do and how they do it … you must be able to interview them to capture the critical information you need … you must know what achievements are the most significant and how to best showcase them … you must quickly demonstrate, in your first communication with each prospective client, that you are THE best resume writer for them.

    Learning to communicate with senior management and executive clients can be challenging. They have high expectations and want you to be able to speak their language. It’s essential for you to know what resources are available to educate yourself about executive job seekers and what proactive steps you can take to grasp a wealth of knowledge about words, concepts, strategies, business operations, and so much more.

    In this intensive 2-hour webinar, Wendy and Marie will share their expertise about how to write, structure, and design resumes that will satisfy the most discriminating clientele and successfully position them for high-level opportunities.

    In addition to the information-rich webinar presentation, you’ll also receive a portfolio of sample resumes and LinkedIn profiles, a list of resources to enhance your executive knowledge, and other handouts to guide you as your build and/or expand your own executive practice.

    As with all our E-Summits, you'll get 2 hours of insightful instruction and a handout with resources, questionnaires, and tools to build your confidence.

    LIVE WEBCAST: Wednesday, February 6, 2019, 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm US Eastern time

    RECORDING: MP3 audio recording – listen any time you want and as often as you want (all who register receive access to the recording)

    Academy Certified Resume Writer (ACRW)
    Spring 2019 Training Program

    Professional resume writers like you come to Resume Writing Academy because they want to be confident that every resume they write will win clients interviews ... they want to be the expert who stands out from the sea of resume advice.

    Do you want the confidence to charge what you are worth for the work you do?

    Do you want to be the expert your career services office needs to teach resume strategies that improve job placement?

    If so, read on to learn more about the Resume Writing Academy training program starting February 19.

    RWA graduates tell us the difference between our program and other programs they’ve tried is that training alone didn’t give them the confidence and results they desired.

    What really transformed their writing and built their confidence was consistent feedback on their work.

    RWAs certification programs are experiential, with English language, formatting, and writing assignments carefully crafted to test your command of strategy, design, and writing.

    Our team of experienced writers give you personalized feedback on every assignment, are available for your questions one-on-one, hold regular office hours to help you with class and client assignments, and continue this support after your graduation.

    PLUS -- no membership is required and certification is built into the program. You'll work hard to create each assignment, rewrite a few assignments, and earn your certification at the end -- no test to take or separate fee to pay.


    What Does the ACRW Program Involve?

    • 5 webclasses on resume strategy, resume writing, content development, cover letter writing, formatting, grammar, keyword and ATS optimization, and more
    • 4 homework assignments with individualized feedback to hone your skills
    • 3 additional resume and letter writing projects with feedback

    What is the Live Webclass Schedule?

    The group webclass starts February 19, 2019, from 1:00 to 2:30 pm Eastern. 

    • All classes are recorded so students can listen later. 
    • Homework for each class is due before class the next week to keep you on track. Need more flexibility? Check out our self-paced program.
    • Class 1: February 19, Great Resume Writing Strategies & Techniques
    • Class 2: February 26, English Language & Grammar for Resume Writers
    • Class 3: March 5, Resume Design & Formatting for Human Readers & ATS
    • Class 4: March 12, Resume Writing: Section by Section

    What Do You Get With RWA?

    Most notably, we offer our graduates a diverse range of writing opportunities that come our way.

    • Subcontract writing positions with other resume companies — a great way to gain additional experience while making money(!). These projects generally pay between $100 to $400 per resume.
    • An opportunity to join the RWA Guild; reserved exclusively for the top graduates of RWA, the Guild often pays extremely well. Can you be one of those top graduates? We're always looking for the very best talent for the Guild.
    • Opportunities for publishing, speaking, job fairs, and other projects – some with compensation and some for building your professional visibility and credibility.

    NOTE: We do not guarantee employment but will continually provide you with leads from resume companies, outplacement firms, and others who need great resume writers TODAY!
