Nationally Certified Resume Writers must first prove their seniority in and commitment to the resume-writing industry by presenting the certification commission with evidence of recent training and development. Once these continuing education (CE) units are accounted for, applicants are invited to submit their best resume and cover letter sample for approval to take the examination. Writers who fall short of the NCRW standards are required to seek one or more avenues for professional development before they resubmit.
When ready, applicants take part in a rigorous two-part exam administered by The National Resume Writers' Association (The NRWA). Our exam, like our pre-qualifying process, is one of the most challenging in the industry. The only way a writer can earn the NCRW certification is by demonstrating a high level of expertise in resume strategy, business writing, grammar and punctuation, proofreading, and electronic resume preparation.
Upon receiving their credential, NCRWs have proven themselves several times over to be the best in their field–a consummate professional dedicated to upholding the highest standards in the business. Subsequently, NCRWs are required to acquire CEs annually to maintain their certification which keeps them on the cutting edge of this ever-changing industry.
You can browse the list below (which is in no particular order) or search for a writer who specializes in your career situation by using the links below. Many resume writers work virtually - meeting with clients via email, phone, and Skype. The NRWA cannot endorse any individual writer. We encourage you to visit these writers' websites or contact them by e-mail through this site to learn more about their specific services and credentials.
