Expanding Your Horizons: Writing For International Audiences

It is no secret that the workforce is becoming more globally mobile every day. Are you prepared to help clients move seamlessly between continents? This E-Summit will provide samples and strategies for writers to position candidates for success in a global workforce.

International resume expert and ACRW Tiffany Hardy and CEO of Resume Writing Academy Marie Zimenoff will outline what is the same and what is different in international resumes – from content and format to cultural considerations and more!

Special guests will provide a breadth of information and strategies: Stephanie Clark (Canada), Maike Hennig (Europe), Birgitta Möller (Europe), and Stephen Van Vreede (Asia). With samples from these writers and other ACRWs, this session is packed full of resources.

If you want to expand the opportunities for your clients (and for your business!), this is a webinar you won't want to miss!
