The NRWA 2021 Annual Conference - Resilient & Thriving

2020 challenged us to embrace change and find ways to prosper. Today, we are Resilient and Thriving—so much so that we’ve aptly adopted this as the theme for this year’s virtual conference, taking place September 20-23, 2021. Registration is open!

We’re excited to kick things off by announcing Dr. Dawn Graham, TEDx speaker, LinkedIn Learning instructor, author and host of the popular “Dr. Dawn on Careers” on SiriusXM Radio as our keynote speaker.

We are offering plenty of opportunities for networking and learning, covering topics to best help your business and job seekers -- from helping the underrepresented to capitalizing on LinkedIn. Whether you write corporate or federal resumes, serve new grads or executives, we have you covered with resume writing best practices. Please review our conference topics below!

Keynote: 10 Trends Impacting Job Seekers in the Future of Work
Dawn Graham, Ph.D., LP

We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Dr. Dawn Graham as this year’s conference keynote speaker! The future of work is here and rapid change in the workplace is the new normal. The way we interact, learn, work, transition and progress is becoming more complex and all of these changes are reflected in careers and the job search.

“The world keeps turning at warp speed for everyone—including our job-seeking clients,” says Graham. “As resume writers and career coaches, we must be up to speed on how we can support them in their career goals on the resume and beyond."

Key takeaways for attendees include:

  • Data-backed information on what to watch in the market so that resume writers and coaches can best inform and support their job search clients.
  • Predictions, implications, and challenges impacting the market, job seekers, and hiring – and their effect on resumes/applications/qualifications.
  • Actions for remaining vigilant regarding rapid changes to the work environment, with steps to help clients untangle critical resources and provide learning for future job search and career success.
  • Strategies to engage with clients
Dawn will introduce attendees to two new models—New Career Cycle and Three Drivers of Success as part of this interactive presentation.
