Announcing 2016 TORI Resume Writing Award Nominees

TORIIt’s TORI time!

For 17 consecutive years CDI has been hosting the resume writing industry’s most prestigious Toast of the Resume Industry™ (TORI) resume writing competition.

The TORIs are an international competition in which contestants submit their best resume writing work in a specific category.

Nominees and winners are selected by two separate panels or judges (former award winners and/or individuals with elite master-level credentials) who review entries blind (no writer identification).

There are five nominees in each of the eight categories:

  • Accounting / FInance
  • Executive
  • Healthcare / Medical
  • Hospitality
  • Information Technology
  • International
  • New Graduate
  • Sales

The TORIs are recognized as a coveted industry accolade as they designate the best of the best to job seekers and produce such intense ROI for both nominees and winners.

Help us in recognizing and celebrating the following nominees. They are listed in random order by category.
