FEB 5| Resume Writing Transformation: ACRW Group Class
You want to be confident that every resume you write will win clients interviews. You want to be confident in answering candidate concerns about the resume strategy that will work best for them ... to be the expert who stands out from the sea of resume advice.
You want the confidence to charge what you are worth for the work you do.
You want to be the expert your career services office needs to teach resume strategies that improve job placement.
Training alone won't give you the confidence and results you desire.
Of course you would like to know the best practices for writing, strategy, and design (for ATS and human readers). Resume Writing Academy (RWA) has been teaching these concepts longer than anyone in the business.
But what you really need is feedback on your work so you can take your resume writing and expertise to the next level.
RWAs certification programs are the only ones in the industry that provide English language, formatting, and writing assignments – each 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 letters and e-notes, formatting, grammar, keyword and ATS optimization, and more
4 homework assignments with individualized feedback to hone your skills in strategy, writing, and formatting
3 additional resume and letter writing projects to practice writing for specific industries (with the same in-depth, personalized feedback!)
What Resources Does the ACRW Program Include?
Hundreds of pages of handouts and samples of resumes, cover letters, e-notes, LinkedIn profiles, and more
100-page resume e-book
50-page cover letter e-book
8 videos demonstrating best-in-class, ATS-friendly Word formatting techniques
Discounts on other training programs and events sponsored by RWA and CTL
Personalized feedback on your assignments and continued support after graduation
