CV - Curriculum Vitae

Let's Talk About the Healthcare, Academic, and International CV!

Presented by Matthew J.  Dupee, MBA, MSF,  M.Ed., CPRW

Friday, May 17, 2019, 12:30 p.m.-1:30 p.m., ET

This webinar will cover the CV and when to use the CV vs. a resume and explain the major differences between the two. Examples will be shared during the webinar and provided as handouts.

In this presentation you will learn:

        • about CV best practices
        • about the “Do’s” and “Don’ts” of CV writing
        • how a CV can help and hurt a client
        • how to create an appealing CV that will capture the attention of all readers while also speaking directly to your primary audience, including doctors (healthcare); professors (higher education); and international hiring managers (non-U.S. positions requiring a CV rather than a resume). 

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.

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

Note: Everyone who registers for this webinar will receive a free demo DISCstyles Assessment to discover their personal DISCstyle; this has a suggested retail value of $97. If you are a current ProfilingPro DISC Administrator, you will receive one free report-credit towards your account. We will reach out to all registrants with the DISCstyles information link so you can complete the assessment prior to the webinar date.

Webinar Description:

Most professional/executive resume 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:

    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.
