Samples must be in compliance with the NCRW Study Guide and The Gregg Reference Manual – 10th or 11th Edition. Send the cover letter and résumé in separate Word documents. No need for PDF or ASCII at this stage.
Samples are only rejected if they have been previously used for another association’s certification program OR have been written by another party.
We want to see what you know about strategy, formatting, writing, and professionalism. Address challenges and limitations by embellishing the sample; make it more relevant and succinct.
Disguise your client's résumé, taking off all that client’s personal information and substituting fictional information. Think outside the box when using a client's résumé. Create a name, company, employment dates, education. Sell your fictional client!
In Microsoft Word, go to File/Properties.
