Award-Winning Resumes – 2021 TORI Award Nominees

2021 TORI Award Nominees -- CDI's 2021 Toast of the Resume Industry TORI Resume Writing Award NomineesWhat an amazing year for recognizing excellence in resume writing with the 2021 nominations for CDI’s Toast of the Resume Industry (TORI) resume writing award competition. These TORI award nominees are shaking things up!

In its 22nd year, the TORIs are an international competition in which professional resume writers submit their best resume writing work in a specific category.

This year we mixed things up by adding classic design resume categories so we could balance the options available today ranging from high-end graphic design to more traditional styling.

I’m excited to say that 42% of TORI nominations this year are to professional resume writers who have never been nominated before!

Those first-time TORI award nominees are also not limited to the classic design categories!

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).

The 2021 TORI judges had quite a challenge on their plate this year with so many stellar entries!

Please congratulate the following 2021 TORI nominees!

There are five nominees in each of the ten categories:

Best Classic Executive Resume
Best Classic High Tech Resume
Best Difficult Transition Resume
Best Healthcare/Medical Resume
Best New Graduate Resume
Best Classic Difficult Transition Resume
Best Classic New Graduate Resume
Best Sales Resume
Best Executive Resume
Best High Tech Resume

The TORIs are recognized as a coveted industry accolade as they produce such intense ROI for both nominees and winners.
