    Insightful Information:

    How to Get It, How to Use It Beyond the Resume

    Friday, November 9, 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m., ET


    Resume writers today write much more than resumes. We are also creating LinkedIn profiles and other documents, substantially different from the resume in content, tone, and style.

    Taught by Louise Kursmark, one of the leading career experts in the U.S., participants will learn and/or see:

    • Questions to ask—and when and how to ask them—to uncover insightful information.
    • Ideas and examples for including insightful information in documents other than the resume.
    • Portfolio examples that illustrate how information is used in different ways for the same client.

    Create Impact Bullets That Sell Your Clients' ROI Value

    Thursday, September 13, 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., ET


    We’ve all seen first-hand, clients with resume- and LinkedIn-profile challenges – from no branding and lack of stories to funky formatting, styling and poor keyword optimization. The most common weakness, however, is a lack of value – especially when it comes to writing bullet points.

    A resume’s experience section must be value- and not function-based, or it reads like an endless, dull and unimpressive list of job responsibilities. As professional resume writers, it's up to us to ensure resumes are rich in value statements that sell our clients in today’s competitive job market.

    Taught by CareerThinker founder and NRWA Board Member Tom Powner, attendees will learn:

    • Techniques that help clients see their value.
    • Intake questions that open Pandora’s Box.
    • How to turn responsibilities bullets into value/contribution statements.
    • Improved techniques that get clients engaged and excited about their professional value.
    • How to use the CAR method to create resume value statements.
