About the NRWA
The NRWA is the only nonprofit, member-driven resume writers’ organization in the world. The mission of the NRWA is to increase the visibility of the industry, encourage ethical practices, promote excellence, and raise industry standards through peer marketing and training.

The NRWA’s Certification Commission awards the highly sought-after Nationally Certified Resume Writer (NCRW) credential to resume writers who demonstrate basic resume knowledge, writing, and strategy. Through the efforts of the volunteer Certification Commission the program certifies the best resume writers in the industry.
