This is our second year with the Classic Design categories.
On one hand, we saw some beautiful entries submitted into the Classic categories that judges found exceeded the listed acceptable design criteria.
But on the other hand, nominees are ALREADY seeing positive outcomes from the 2022 Classic categories!
Nominee Eve Ruth wrote us:
Since the TORI nominees were posted five weeks ago, I have received an unprecedented 15 inquiries from that source alone. The SEO for the TORIs is eye-opening and a real business builder.
In talking with a few of these potential clients, I learned that several of them were ONLY interested in working with nominees in the Classic Executive category. This surprised me at first, but then I realized it’s on-trend with the way executives want to be presented these days—big impact with clean, ATS-friendly design. The Classic Exec category is a perfect fit for the majority of executives out there.”
Every year the TORIs are a major boost to the resume writers who receive nomination or go on to win.
I’m also thrilled to see so many-first time winners and so many different styles of resume writing represented this year!
In fact, twenty-five percent (25%) of our named TORI resume writing award winners were first timers!
For 2022, I don’t envy the judges their difficult task in selecting from such amazing resumes to select and rank the top three in each category.
If you made it to nomination but did not win, hold your head high as the results were within a hair’s breadth of each other! Every resume on its own was a WINNER and you should all be proud!
It’s so very exciting what an eye for design, willingness to grow and strengthen that muscle, and mastery of MS Word can do to a resume and a candidate’s success. The TORIs are the pinnacle of that potential and I invite you to view the winners and their resumes now.
