Nelly Grinfeld is the owner and sole operator of Top of the Stack Resume in Cincinnati, OH. She loves working one-on-one with her clients to create powerful job search documents that will help them advance their careers. Nelly has an MBA from Xavier University in Cincinnati, but the NCRW certification is the first résumé writing certification she has obtained.
Since joining The NRWA in 2013, Nelly soon realized that the NCRWcertification is a great way to enhance her knowledge and offer credibility to her clients and prospects. She says, “I realize there are other certifications out there, and that some may be easier to get, but I wanted to prove to myself that I could get this more difficult certification.”
Nelly plans to highlight her NCRW certification by sending a press release to be published locally. Nelly says, “Anyone can say they are a résumé writer, but not just anyone can say they are a certified résumé writer.”
Nelly feels that the certification process is quite reasonable. She also learned a great deal about résumé writing, proper grammar, and the standards résumé writers should hold themselves to in order to provide clients with the best career marketing documents possible.
For those who may be hesitant to pursue the NCRW certification, Nelly says, “I say, go for it! It sounds quite daunting at first, with all those steps and parts to accomplish. But, by taking it one part at a time and not rushing through it, it can be done!”
