As many of you know, I have been writing professional resumes and providing resume writing services to clients for many years. Last year I decided to take the next step and pursue certification. I did some research and identified three highly reputable certifying organizations for professional resume writers. I chose one and then spent weeks preparing for the test, which lasted three days in December. I am proud to share with you that I am now officially a Certified Professional Resume Writer or CPRW.

My experience leads me to ask you, is there training or certification you can pursue that would benefit your career? I encourage you to make a list of skills, training, or certifications that would create more opportunities for you in your career. If you’re not sure what to put on your list, scan current job listings for positions similar to yours and see what employers are looking for today. Then do your research and find resources to obtain your training or certification. Make sure the school or certifying organizations has a good reputation in the marketplace; don’t just go for what appears to be easiest or cheapest. Then check out resources at your company or resources in your local state or community to see if there is funding available for some part of your education.

What training or certifications have you found most beneficial in your career so far? I’d love to hear from you below.

Client Stories

I have found Lori’s webinars and her services to be extremely informative. Her professional deportment is exemplary, she is easy to converse with and she is very helpful with ideas and comments. Her knowledge of the business climate in the US and western countries serves her well. She is also an expert of making tools such as LinkedIn work for you…whether you are looking for another position or whether you are growing your own business. I cannot say enough good things about the way she manages her seminars, the usefulness of her websites and her offering. She takes the time to understand your particular situation, and interacts with you to guide you to make the right decisions. If you are looking for a career coach, get her services and you will not be disappointed.
