    Create Impact Bullets That Sell Your Clients' ROI Value

    Thursday, September 13, 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., ET


    We’ve all seen first-hand, clients with resume- and LinkedIn-profile challenges – from no branding and lack of stories to funky formatting, styling and poor keyword optimization. The most common weakness, however, is a lack of value – especially when it comes to writing bullet points.

    A resume’s experience section must be value- and not function-based, or it reads like an endless, dull and unimpressive list of job responsibilities. As professional resume writers, it's up to us to ensure resumes are rich in value statements that sell our clients in today’s competitive job market.

    Taught by CareerThinker founder and NRWA Board Member Tom Powner, attendees will learn:

    • Techniques that help clients see their value.
    • Intake questions that open Pandora’s Box.
    • How to turn responsibilities bullets into value/contribution statements.
    • Improved techniques that get clients engaged and excited about their professional value.
    • How to use the CAR method to create resume value statements.

    LinkedIn Marketing 101: Tips to Market and Brand Your Business
    Thursday, August 9, 5:00 p.m. – 6: 00 p.m., ET


    There is no doubt that LinkedIn is a great tool to enhance your overall marketing strategy. Why? Because that’s where your ideal customers go for professional content.

    To understand LinkedIn as a marketing tool, and to sell services beyond rewriting profiles, career professionals MUST know how to use and understand the platform.

    With LinkedIn adding hundreds of customers daily to its member rosters, webinar attendees will learn how to elevate their personal and business profile on the site and showcase their offerings to potential clients.

    Taught by NRWA member Nickquolette Barrett, a Career Development Strategist and Founder/CEO of iRock Development Solutions, whose experience spans a 26+ year corporate career with over 16 years of leadership experience in corporate training, sales, insurance operations, advertising and marketing.
