SEPTEMBER 14| Resume Writing Transformation: ACRW Group Class

Career professionals like you come to Resume Writing Academy because they want confidence that every resume they write will win clients interviews. They 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.

Graduates tell us the difference between RWA and other programs they've tried is that training alone didn't give them the confidence and results they desired.

What transformed their writing and built their confidence was feedback on their work.

Do you want the confidence to charge what you are worth for your work?

Do you want to be the expert your career services team needs to improve job placement?

If so, read on to learn more about the ACRW program.

RWA's certification program provides grammar, formatting, and writing assignments carefully crafted to test your command of strategy, design, and writing.

Our team of experienced writers gives you personalized feedback on every assignment, answers to class/client project questions, and continued support after graduation.

PLUS – no membership is required, and certification is built into the program. You'll work hard on each assignment, rewrite a few, 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 resume, cover letter, and e-note samples
  • 100-page resume e-book
  • 50-page cover letter e-book
  • 8 videos demonstrating best-in-class, ATS-friendly Word formatting techniques
  • Personalized feedback on your assignments and continued support after graduation
  • PLUS – subcontract opportunities that pay $100 to $400 per resume and leads for publishing, speaking, and other project work
  • NOTE: We do not guarantee employment but continually provide leads from companies who need great resume writers TODAY!

Questions? Schedule a time to talk with Resume Writing Academy CEO Marie Zimenoff about the program.
