In this intensive and exciting laser coaching program, you will work 1-1 with Laura DeCarlo, CDI's President and an industry leading resume writer and multi-resume award winner, to evaluate your resume writing, abolish any weaknesses, build upon your strengths, and dramatically enhance your skills.
We laser-focus on YOU and your resume writing!
Before each session, you will be given instructions for submitting 1-2 resumes for review. These resumes are typically representative of what you feel showcases your strongest work, but can also be ones that you found most challenging. They can also be ones you have previously entered in the TORIs or for CDI certification. Along with those resumes you will also share any specific goals or challenges you would like to tackle.
It's OK if you are not sure what your next steps should be at this point. Individual sessions will be tailored to the strategies that you need to help you to rapidly ramp up your technique and strengthen any areas needing improvement.
Together we will transform your resume writing.
These 1-1 sessions will include instructional assignments and could cover:
This is an exclusive personalized program chock full of resources, tools, and solutions to cut right to what fast-tracks YOU to becoming the best resume writer you can be. Join resume master, Laura DeCarlo, for:
In a structured course, you fit yourself to a set program curriculum that follows an A to Z path meant to cover the typical requirements of writing resumes better.
But that's most likely not what you need!
As an experienced resume writer you are still most likely going to learn more in a course, but you are also going to be stuck spending lots of time on information that you already know and do, never gaining direct input on where you can dramatically improve your OWN writing, information gathering, and development process.
The CDI Resume Writing Master Mentor Consulting Program is NOT a one-size-fits-all curriculum meant to satisfy the needs of all resume writers.
Instead, it is a highly individualized, 1-1, laser-focused process where you work with an award-winning industry expert to cut right to what YOU need to improve your writing.
You can expect to make dramatic strides in your writing with this unique, tailored approach beyond any other method available in training.
Because of the highly individualized 1-1 nature of the Resume Writing Master Mentor Consulting Program, space is extremely limited. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come-first-serve availability and a waiting list may be made available. Additionally, if entering a CDI annual resume writing competition is your goal, you won’t want to wait to ensure ample time to prepare!
If you are new to resume writing or feel you are still getting the hang of the craft, this program will not provide the amount of time needed to bring you up to speed. Instead, check out CDI’s Resume Mastery course. Having a resume certification to participate in the program is not mandatory, but it is a good indication of having a background ready for this advanced tutelage. This program is not for specialized federal resume writing.
Laura DeCarlo entered her first resume writing competition while attending her first PARW conference (1996?) and won a first place award for Most Visually Distinctive Resume. She entered her next competition after joining CDI (then PRWRA) in 2000. From that competition she won ‘Most points overall’, first place for Best Resume Format, first place for Most Creative resume, second place for Best Resume Content, and second place for Best Functional Resume. (She’s proud to say she and Gayle Howard competed and both took home first place awards way back then)! From the results of that competition, she was asked to join the Board of Directors as VP of Awards where she directed the awards, now called the TORIs. She later created and hosted the World’s Best Resume Writer competition. Laura's work has been featured in over 16 resume writing compendiums and she is the author of Resumes for Dummies, 7th and 8th editions.
Hundreds of resume writers have refined their resume writing craft by learning from Laura, and she can boast that any private resume writing client who has pursued the TORI awards has gone on to win after working with her.
Highlights of Laura's relevant achievements:
Take advantage of this unique opportunity to work privately with the industry’s leading resume writing expert! And, perhaps there will be a TORI award in YOUR FUTURE! But no matter what your goal, you will dramatically propel your resume writing skills.
