February 19 | 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 starting February 19.
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 give you personalized feedback on every assignment, answer class/client project questions, and continue this 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!

February 18 | International Career Colleague Discussion
These discussions are an opportunity to build community with colleagues internationally while discussing best practices and trends.
Building on our lively conversation in November about LinkedIn, we'll be talking about how we help clients identify their unique promise of value, communicate it authentically, and connect with their target audience.
All career practitioners – coaches, brand strategists, resume/profile writers and beyond – are invited to join the conversation. All career colleagues are invited, and the call is set for 12:00 Noon Paris Time (6 am ET) for our colleagues in Europe and beyond.

Meet Our Keynote Speaker
Paul Osincup | Leveraging Levity: Humor as a Strategy for Workplace Positivity
More than one-third of Americans experience chronic stress at work and 85% report not being happy at work. This high-energy, funny, and content-rich talk will explore both why and how to use humor as a tool for positivity, productivity, and success at work. Although it's packed full of actionable and research-based ideas for implementation in the work of symposium attendees and their clients, this talk is only appropriate for those who enjoy laughing.
