CAREER BRANDING: HOW TO CREATE UNIQUE, VALUABLE, AND MEMORABLE RESUMES

Presented by Rebecca McCarthy, NCRW, NCOPE

Friday, September 25, 2020

12:30 p.m.-1:30 p.m., ET

A well-written resume is the ticket to landing an “okay” job, but career branding is the backstage pass that gives your clients VIP access to opportunities that others miss. A strong career brand makes your clients an easy “YES” for recruiters and gives them faster access to the opportunities they really want.

“Branding” is a word tossed about on the internet nowadays, but what does it really mean? As professional writers, how can we apply the principles of branding to create meaningful, lasting brand equity for our clients? This webinar will show you the basics of career branding as well as some practical “how-tos” for creating resumes that are unique, valuable, and memorable. Rebecca will provide information that you can begin to use immediately, including:

  • The three elements of a branded resume.
  • Co-branding and how to use it to your client’s advantage.
  • How to conduct a career branding interview.
  • Simple branding "how-tos" you can apply to your documents right away


This one-hour webinar is $19.99 for NRWA members and $39.99 for nonmembers and qualifies for 1 CEU. It will be recorded and distributed to all participants.
