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. We also continue to update the Academy Certified Resume Writer (ACRW) program, adding the latest information on branding, ATS resumes, and modern formats.
Both programs offer connections to lucrative writing opportunities and 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!
