    1. Meeting base criteria of having earned an approved resume certification.
    2. Submitting a portfolio of four resume samples appropriate for the topic such as people returning to work and covering gaps after illness, injury, incarceration, or being stay-at-home parents; people making big career changes; people overcoming major obstacles like being fired.
    3. Writing a one page essay that demonstrates your knowledge of working with and aiding these type of clients.

    That’s it!

    Once received it does require review and approval by the CDI Certifiication Committee, but it is a step closer to attracting your ideal clients!
