Webinars:  Education and Professional Development


As a career professional, you are constantly reminding your clients of the importance of continuing education and staying on top of the trends. We know all too well the importance of learning in career success. And, as we get busy helping others, we often don't make time for our own continuing education!

The NRWA strives to provide on-demand, relevant learning opportunities for career professionals including webinars and convenient training. The goal of each of these is to help you maintain your skills, build your credibility, and stay on top of the industry's dynamic trends at your convenience.

Upcoming Webinar: Friday, May 20th

Tap Into The Growing Tech Market 

Presented by Ruth Pankratz, Gabby Communications

Friday, May 20th  ▬  11:30-12:30 p.m. (EST)

Presented by Ruth Pankratz, Gabby Communications

Are you prepared to help technical professionals overcome challenges by communicating their business value and differentiating them in the market place? According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the technical profession is one of the fastest growing fields. What we know is that it’s very difficult for technical professionals to put into words exactly what they do.

In this webinar, you will learn how to…

  • Effectively collect your client’s technical content by asking key questions, translating technical terms, and creating powerful content.
  • Quickly locate resources to understand technical terms so that you can approach these projects with confidence.
  • Implement techniques that align your client’s content with their job aim, section-by-section, regardless of their professional level.
  • Create résumé formats that showcase technical experience and value, including positioning certifications, patents, white papers, publications, and more!

* One CEU will be awarded for this webinar.

* Can’t make the live webinar? No worries… All webinars are recorded and links are distributed to registrants within 24-72 hours.

It’s an honor helping diverse clients build their image word by word, creating compelling documents and developing marketing strategies. Throughout my career, my passions have always been marketing and writing.
