    These individuals are recognized for their ability to write and design beyond a well-written and laid out resume to embrace graphic elements such as color, images, graphs, charts, and call out boxes to better draw the eye and highlight content.

    In a time where images are king, this lets job seekers stand out from all the black and white resumes that just aren’t working as well as they used to.

    In 2023 we updated the logo, so it is possible you may see either one in use by a verified individual on this list below.

    To date there are only 14 recognized CGRAs in the world*. These talented professionals include, in alphabetical order thus not by any preference:

    Bridget Batson – Houston Outplacement Resume Writing and Career Counseling

    Skye Berry – Skye is the Limit Resume & Career Solutions

    Paula Christensen – Strategic Career Coaches

    Tiffany Cruz – Power Writers USA

    Laura DeCarlo

    Laura Hartnell – Laura Hartnell Career Transition Services

    Gayle Howard – Top Margin Career Marketing

    Scott Nichols – Advanced Career Services

    Kimberly Robb Baker – This Little Brand

    Barbara Safani – Career Solvers

    Deborah Schuster – The Lettersmith

    * Others claiming the CGRA may have forfeited their right to the credential due to not maintaining continuing education requirements. Or, they may simply be falsely claiming the credential. Do note that the list will change as new members earn the credential, so it is always a good idea to search again using CDI’s Find a Career Professional database.
