    About 2024 Judging

    As in every judging situation, each judge comes from their own personal experience and background, making it challenging to come to an agreement for picking winners around innovation.

    While it was crystal clear that the scoring indicates several unanimous wins, coming up with an agreed upon five required us to have the judge rank them so that we could assign weights and identify the top five in that manner.

    We consider the following five to all be winners and do not assign a true ranked order. However, the winners are listed below according to score with the highest score appearing first and so on.


    Cathy Lanzalaco of Inspire Careers – Inspire Careers Student Professional Launch Program™

    Highest rated! (See above)

    This program is a multimedia experience designed to transform the career launch of new/recent/soon-to-be college graduates. From resume creation, weekly 1-1 Zoom coaching sessions, Monday morning motivation emails, to group Mastermind meetings with other program participants, to practicing their video presence, to exclusive invitation-only events with other industry experts, this program covers all the bases. Through DISC and Strengthsfinders assessments that help them learn about and how to talk about themselves, interview coaching, making networking connections, and helping them negotiate their salary offers, this is a one-of-a-kind experience.

    This scope and delivery of this program engrains a level of personal and professional accountability in these young people that their parents or school career centers cannot provide, which is a key driver in the program’s success.

    This program is not just about landing a job; it is about helping them achieve complete independence in the job search and land a significantly better job than they could on their own. This program changes lives.

    Lori Ann Jazvac of Creative Horizons Communications – Books: The Secrets to Unlocking Your Soul Career and Yes, You Can Heal Your Career Journey! (first 2 e-books listed at URL)

    My innovation is 2 career e-books that I have written independently and published in 2022 through Tablo Publishing and featured on various platforms, including Amazon.

    The first book is called “The Secrets to Unlocking Your Soul Career”. (56 pages)

    The second book is entitled “Yes, You Can Heal Your Career Journey!” (66 pages)

    The purpose of these e-books is to support jobseekers in realizing their purpose and channeling it in an empowering direction to navigate their career journey with confidence while addressing and translating setbacks and obstacles into opportunities for growth and success. I aim to share my experiences about “The Dark Night of the Soul”, and also provide innovative learning tools and exercises (“The Career Tree” and self-reflection and healing exercises) for jobseekers. I also emphasize career mapping and carving out one’s unique value proposition as a way to unlock one’s soul purpose. The key for clients to remember is that uncovering one’s soul career is not an overnight process, but one requiring courage, focus, experimentation, and self-reflection as well as collaboration. The journey is just as important as the destination.

    Melissa Kelley of Kelley Resumes and WordsmithingInnovative Resume Writer Onboarding Process

    I’ve developed an approach to onboarding clients and writing first drafts that enables clients to start applying to jobs with the first draft of their resumes. A key part of this approach is a tool that enables clients to use ChatGPT to tailor their resumes to every job they apply to and generate rough content for their cover letters.

    2024 Honorable Mention

    2022 Award Winners

    About 2022 Judging

    This was extremely challenging for our judges this year and we ended up extending their judging timeframe. There was quite a lack of consensus as to what was actually innovative today – either for content, delivery method, or both.

    While every submission offered something of value and received at least one vote to win, through judge feedback we believe one of the greatest barriers for entrants in placing for an award was lack of familiarity with programs that already exist or overlap in their space, or in creating offerings that seem to be derived partially out of existing white labeled programs.

    Additionally, a Career Innovator award requires innovation and not just excellence. Conversely, innovation is also not enough if the program content is not of a high caliber or it is difficult/confusing to use.

    The greatest agreement was that one entry had 62% of the winning votes from the eight judges, but at different scales of one to five with one being the highest and five the lowest. Two judges scored it as the #1 best innovation. That winner is The Career Snapshot© by Rex Roy. The other winners were scored relatively equally so that if we were ranking all of them, there would be four tied for second place.

    We did run the numbers multiple different ways just to be sure of the winners and nominees.

    In no particular order, except the 1st:

    Rex Roy of The Career Snapshot©The Career Snapshot©

    Highest rated! (See above)

    The Career Snapshot© is a new tool for job seekers that fills an important void in the networking and personal brand building space. It is a 1-page, metric-based, interactive infographic developed by a 40-year veteran of the advertising and marketing world. The Career Snapshot is not a replacement for the traditional resumé and cover letter, but a supplement to these important tools. The Snapshot helps clients quickly earn the attention of hiring influencers and decision makers, improving the chances of starting a conversation that can lead to a job offer.

    Maureen Farmer of Westgate Executive Branding & Career ConsultingCEO 90-Day Plan

    Maureen instituted a significant innovation with our CEO 90-day plan. The strategy has evolved over 5 years and toward the end of last year, we published a blog on the Westgate website titled, Make your CEO and board happy with a 90-day plan, and it includes a template, checklist, and accountability script.

    Whether you’re a new CEO, an experienced CEO, or a C-level planning to get hired up, you can use this comprehensive 90-day plan to jump start your year, maximize performance, and appease your investors.

    Like a Swiss Army Knife, the 90-day plan will help you master the job interview, master your first 90 days on the job, and serve as a continuous performance improvement tool.

    Tiffany Cruz of Power Writers USA – The Video Resume Pro App 

    Video Resume Pro is a mobile app designed to digitize, modernize, and personalize the job search process. The app quickly connects job seekers with recruiters through short, customized video resumes recorded on the app, which they can send directly to recruiters on LinkedIn. Video Resume Pro is opening a new revenue stream for resume writers to create scripts for the jobseekers to speak to. Resume writers can sell this script writing product to each client as an enhancement and digital solution to the traditional resume (Suggested to quote based on the length of the video: 15/30/60 sec). This allows job seekers to put a “voice” to their resume and share more of who they are. Recruiters and hiring managers have a new way to “meet” the person they are interviewing before/while they review their resume, helping them make better hires and better align talent with company culture.

    Athena Ali of The Get Noticed CoachKey Selection Criteria Made Easy course (formerly Interview Landing Key Selection Criteria)

    The Interview Landing Key Selection Criteria course is part of my Career Accelerator program. This program is specific to the Australian Public Sector. It is for job seekers who use the STAR method to respond to selection criteria.

    This contains my unique way of explaining the process instead of using the word STAR for the method, I use the 4 I’s. Issue, Improve, Implement and Impact.

    I use this formula to explain how criteria should be addressed and why it is more impactful to start with the end in mind.

    The summary of how this formula is used is that Impact should be the first thing you write in your selection criteria as it immediately “wows” the reader into wanting to read more.

    We tell them the impact we made first (like the Result in the STAR method) which also lends itself to being like the achievement or accomplishment statement in your resume.

    When we begin our paragraph with the result, it draws in the reader to want to know more about how you achieved that and you can then go on and tell the story of what the issue was, the methods you used to improve it, then go through how you implemented it and then reiterate the impact you had when you did this. Knowing how to write key selection criteria is also crucial to writing your achievement statements in your
    resume, writing your cover letter, and being able to respond to behavioural interview questions which is why it is crucial to get this right in Australian Public Service applications. It does not only help to address key selection criteria requested, but should be enmeshed in all the job
    application documents submitted.

    When you see how STAR is explained on government websites, there isn’t enough information for applicants to really understand how to do this in a way that “wows” the hiring manager, the responses provided are very vanilla, vague and just like what everyone else would submit.

    My course breaks down what to do before you start writing, how to decipher the questions, examples, and also how to write them in a way that will excite hiring managers and bring the candidate in for an interview.

    2022 Honorable Mentions

    Alana Henry of The Writique, LLCComprehensive Pipeline for Prospective Clients, Active Clients, and Offboarding Clients Using Dubsado and ClickUp

    I have created a comprehensive pipeline for my prospective clients, active clients, and offboarding clients in two tools: Dubsado, and ClickUp. Despite not being designed for use within the writing industry, I have tailored the setup and functionality of these tools to ensure optimal performance for resume writers according to our unique needs. The labels, data dashboard, and custom statuses can ensure that resume writers and their staff are aware of where each project is in their pipeline and that nothing “slips through the cracks”. Taking the knowledge and understanding of these tools and process optimization, I have worked to support other resume writers in creating a client journey that meets their needs and reduces inefficiencies.

    From interviewing hundreds of job candidates in my career as a leader in corporate America and with my clients, I found that people get caught up in telling their story or situation and forget to tell the end result. This led to the I developed a new way of helping job candidates interview better. I call it the iRockS.T.A.R. Method or R-S.T.A.R. Method, which helps job candidates to interview better when answering behavioral or competency-based questions. It’s a better way to utilize the S.T.A.R. method successfully.

    Jennifer Hay of IT Resume Service – Information Management (BI and Analytics) and Data Management courses for job seekers interested in these fields

    • Recent graduates and those fairly new to information technology to help them decide the next steps in their career by giving them a foundational understanding of each specialty.
    • Recent graduates are often taught concepts and techniques for several specialties but are not taught how each fits into the overall field. They don’t have a real understanding of the job roles and how they interconnect; for example, who would depend on them and upon whom would they depend.
    • Those people who are considering a job change into information technology and need help deciding what specialty is right for them.
    • Those people who want to help shape successful interviews by demonstrating their understanding of the roles and responsibilities of others within their team.
