    The only personal branding program used in 40 countries with thousands of clients.

    Personal branding isn't the flavor of the month. It is a transformational process entrepreneurs, small business owners, executives, professionals, and job seekers use to find authenticity and identify the branded value that makes them more influential, indispensable, and incredibly happy at work.

    For your clients, personal branding is the future of career management -- a proactive solution for their long-term career success.

    Personal branding launches your career -- boosting your confidence in knowing you are doing the best for your client, taking the right steps and not having to make it up as you go

    After the CPBS program, you'll sound and feel like an expert -- exiting the spiral of constantly hunting new clients at a low price point because you lack a long-term value proposition that connects with and converts your ideal clients.

    In the Certified Personal Brand Strategist program, you will learn the Reach Personal Branding methodology – a comprehensive, three-step process for uncovering, communicating, and nurturing your personal brand.

    You'll walk away ready to:

    • More confidently engage clients and consistently surpass client expectations
    • Articulate a unique value proposition to stand out in the crowded coach market
    • Produce replicable results and systemize client interaction with done-for-you workbooks
    • Attract more ideal clients and make more money with a turn-key personal branding business

    NEW** We've simplified the certification process and added more value throughout the year. In addition to the Certified Personal Brand Strategist class, you get the following bonuses. 

    BONUS #1
    Savings. When you join on or before August 2, 2018, you receive $500.00 in early-bird savings -- and more!

    BONUS #2
    Social Branding Analyst Certification (normally $797.00). Your clients first impression is digital – 90% of recruiters use social media and 80% of people research online before buying from a company. Become the guide your clients need to build a consistent online presence.

    BONUS #3
    360Reach Analyst Certification. As part of your Personal Branding Certification, you become certified to use 360Reach  the personal branding survey that has been used by over a million people. It's fun! It's innovative! And it’s actionable!

    You receive 3 certifications -- normally $3,794 -- for as little as $2,497, a savings of up to 34%!

    ICF Coaches Only:  When you complete the requirements for all 3 certifications (and attend all sessions live), you'll receive 18 ICF CCEs!

    Academy Certified Resume Writer (ACRW)
    Fall 2018 Training Program

    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 ... they want to be the expert who stands out from the sea of resume 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 strategies that improve job placement?

    If so, read on to learn more about the Resume Writing Academy training program starting September 14.

    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.

    RWAs 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 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 letter writing, formatting, grammar, keyword and ATS optimization, and more
    • 4 homework assignments with individualized feedback to hone your skills
    • 3 additional resume and letter writing projects with feedback

    What is the Live Webclass Schedule?

    The group webclass starts September 14, 2018, from Noon to 1:30 pm Eastern. 

    • All classes are recorded so students can listen later. 
    • Homework for each class is due before class the next week to keep you on track. Need more flexibility? Check out our self-paced program.
    • Class 1: September 14, Great Resume Writing Strategies & Techniques
    • Class 2: September 21, English Language & Grammar for Resume Writers
    • Class 3: September 28, Resume Design & Formatting for Human Readers & ATS
    • Class 4: October 5, Resume Writing: Section by Section
    • Class 5: October 12, Cover Letters, E-Notes & Best Practices in Resume Writing (Asking Great Questions, Writing Efficiency)


    What Do You Get With RWA?

    • 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
    • 5 videos demonstrating best-in-class formatting and presentation techniques
    • Discounts on other training programs and events sponsored by RWA and CTL

    Most notably, we offer our graduates a diverse range of writing opportunities that come our way.

    • Subcontract writing positions with other resume companies — a great way to gain additional experience while making money(!). These projects generally pay between $100 to $400 per resume.
    • An opportunity to join the RWA Guild; reserved exclusively for the top graduates of RWA, the Guild often pays extremely well. Can you be one of those top graduates? We're always looking for the very best talent for the Guild.
    • Opportunities for publishing, speaking, job fairs, and other projects – some with compensation and some for building your professional visibility and credibility.

    NOTE: We do not guarantee employment but will continually provide you with leads from resume companies, outplacement firms, and others who need great resume writers TODAY!
