Resume & Profile Writing Certification programs

RWA has a long history of training the top writers, keeping writers ahead of trends, and setting the standard for professional career marketing materials.

Professional resume writers like you come to the Resume Writing Academy because they want to be confident that every resume they write will win clients interviews ... that every LinkedIn profile will attract the right audience ... they want to be the expert who stands out from the sea of resume and social media profile writing advice.

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

Do you want to be the expert your career services office needs to teach resume and social media strategies that improve job placement?

If so, read on to learn more about the Resume Writing Academy training programs!

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

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

RWA's certification programs provide English language, formatting, and writing assignments -- each carefully crafted to test your command of strategy, design, and writing.

Our team of experienced writers gives you personalized feedback on every assignment, is available for your questions one-on-one, holds regular office hours to help you with class and client assignments, and continues 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.
