“Enrolling in RWA is the best thing I've done in my 18-year career as a resume writer. The class made me a better interviewer, writer, designer, and strategist; it reinforced skills I already had; and it introduced me to a new level of professionalism. The ACRW designation has already contributed to increasing my revenue in two ways: it has bolstered my confidence to charge more because I finally recognize the value I provide clients, and believe clients are pre-sold when they see it listed in my email signature block and/or hear it in my voice mail message."
WHY IS RWA THE RESUME TRAINING FOR YOU?
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.
“I mentioned my recent ACRW certification yesterday to a NY-based coach/trainer looking for a resume writer and the mere mention of the Academy and your names was enough to generate significant interest in talking and proceeding to the next step. I'm not sure if others considering taking your program understand the weight that the credential from your Academy provides.”
What does completing the RWA program entail?
Part 1: 5 webclasses, including grammar, formatting, and writing homework assignments covering:
Part 2: 3 independent learning programs (industry-specific resume and cover letter writing projects)
Requirements for Completion: Complete a grammar assignment, formatting assignment, and a total of 5 resume projects (2 during Part 1 and 3 during Part 2). You'll have the opportunity to rework each assignment based on the feedback. Upon completion of all assignments and any rewrites, you earn the prestigious ACRW credential and 32 CEUs.

Set up a time to talk with Resume Writing Academy CEO Marie Zimenoff to get answers to your questions!
Entrepreneur. Speaker. Leader.
When Marie Zimenoff started her career, these roles were not in her plan.
So how does an analytical, semi-introverted, risk-averse academic career counselor leave a stable job, start a business in a recession, and become CEO of a think tank?
Mission. Guts. YOU.
Marie has been in your shoes.
Like you, Marie recognizes the huge impact an effective career coach, career counselor, or resume professional can have on clients’ lives.
Like you, she knows the stress of wondering if she’s delivering the best information, experience, and results to aid her clients’ success. Like you, she has sometimes felt the stigma that resume writing often carries within the coaching and counseling worlds at large.
You are Marie’s mission.
Marie understands that dedicated professionals in the careers field need and crave first-class support, training, and innovation. She is committed to giving you the confidence and skills to crush stigmas and stand proudly upon the credibility you’ve earned and deserve.
She’s dedicated her career to making that happen for you.
Marie’s passion for the careers industry runs deep.
A memorable experience with her junior high guidance counselor first introduced Marie to the true power of career professionals.
She began her professional career in the university setting as an advisor and recruiter for a mechanical engineering graduate program at Colorado State University.
While completing her Masters of Education in Human Resource Studies and Career & Counseling Development, Marie interned with a woman who owned a career counseling business.
Deeply inspired, Marie decided to leave her university position and open her own company.
A Strategic Advantage was born.
The year was 2008—the peak of the Great Recession. Undaunted, Marie hustled like crazy. She acquired a diverse range of experiences in the careers industry—career coaching, resume writing, and presenting trainings at workforce centers.
She discovered when she blended her strengths of process and strategy with a marketing approach, she could help leaders who struggled to communicate their value and were stalled in their career growth.
The business grew. Marie grew. Opportunities to serve her colleagues grew.
Entrepreneur. Speaker. Leader.
Pushed by a passion for making a difference to her colleagues, Marie ignored her natural risk aversion and introversion to assume leadership roles that would make a difference.
Marie was elected to the presidency of The National Resume Writers’ Association.
She created Career Confidant Radio.
In early 2015 she assumed ownership of Career Thought Leaders and Resume Writing Academy, and in 2017 she acquired the suite of Reach Personal Branding training and certification programs.
As CEO, speaker, and trainer, Marie shares proven and leading-edge resume writing, profile writing, personal branding, job search, social media, career management, and leadership expertise with professionals worldwide.
