In April, Resume Writing Academy launched the Academy Certified Profile Writer (ACPW) program providing comprehensive training in writing social media profiles that help clients capture hiring manager attention and initiate a connection.

Both programs offer connections to lucrative writing opportunities, hands-on experience and personalized feedback from expert writers.
Writers who are interested in becoming the best in the field have the opportunity to take both programs through our certification bundle – with an $800 savings through August 1, 2016!
