There are still ten (10) categories to enter, 50 chances to be nominated, and 30 chances to win, but this year a more classic resume style will be recognized.
We love and embrace the immense creativity and design of today's TORI-winning resumes. Our founder, Laura DeCarlo, was an early pioneer in this area, winning resume writing awards for Most Visually Distinctive Resume and Most Creative Resume.
While Laura knows the immense value that a graphically-enhanced resume brings to a networking job search and an online search (when either made ATS-friendly with our how-to tutorial or when accompanied by an ATS-friendly resume), she feels it's time we also embrace the more traditional resume styles at the other end of the spectrum:
Classic Equals Exceptional Writing, Keywords, and Light Design for Ease of Read and Engagement.
For the sake of TORI award category titles, these available categories will be called "Classic" as in Best Classic Executive Resume. (We didn't think that Best Light Design Executive Resume makes a lot of sense to job seekers!!)
