NEWS & EVENTS

SEPTEMBER 7| Resume & Profile E-Summit: Eluding Ageism: Writing Strategies for Clients Age 50+

Job seekers age 50 and above are one of the largest groups in the workforce ... and they need help to sell their experience without opening the door for age discrimination.

In this E-Summit, Marie Zimenoff and Jan Melnik will provide strategies for resume writers to help clients who are struggling to present their experience without revealing their age, who are tired of hearing they're "overqualified," and are desperate for an employer to see their value instead of the added cost of hiring an "older" worker.

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, click below to learn more about the ACRW program.
