    Spring 2021 ACRW 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 11.

    RWA graduates tell us that 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.

    • 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
