    The Resume Handshake: Creating Professional Summaries Hiring Managers Will Want to Read

    Presented by Tom Powner, CPRW, CEIP, CCM, CDCC, NCOPE

    Friday, June 21, 2019

    12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m., ET 

    Most resume’s professional/executive summaries are yawning statements more powerful than Ambien 10 mg. Summaries are resume “handshakes,” and the wrong one can leave a weak first impression.

    In this webinar, you will learn:

    • Techniques to quickly create a resume branding statement.
    • How to boost soft skill accuracy by adding rich results from a DISCstyles Assessment.
    • How to write a summary in a style using your client’s voice.
    • How to add visual impact without overpowering the summary.

    Eligible for 1 CEU. This one-hour webinar is $19.99 for NRWA members and $39.99 for nonmembers. It will be recorded and distributed to all participants.

    About Tom Powner, CPRW, CEIP, CCM, CDCC, NCOPE

    A career-changer himself and proof “it can be done,” he resigned from a 25-year career in business development, operations and sales leadership to create Career Thinker Inc. He is motivated by years of viewing thousands of poorly crafted resumes and interviewing more than 1,000 unprepared applicants. His goal is to make a difference by providing people with career services, coaching, technology, inspiration and confidence to motivate them to take action and advance their careers. He helps a broad range of clients, but his sweet spot is preparing future executives to connect to their next role.
