Insightful Information:

How to Get It, How to Use It Beyond the Résumé

Friday, November 9, 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m., ET


Today, résumé writers write much more than résumé. For most clients we are also creating LinkedIn profiles and other documents that are substantially different in content, tone, and style than the résumé
In this webinar we’ll explore how to gather additional, insightful information from clients and how to put those insights to work beyond the résumé. You’ll gain fresh ideas for what to ask, when to ask it, and how to translate insightful information into unique yet cohesive messages for LinkedIn and other client needs. 
Filled with examples, sample questions, and other takeaways, this webinar will provide inspirational and practical ideas that will energize your writing.

You Will Learn:

      • Questions to ask—and when and how to ask them—to uncover insightful information.
      • Ideas and examples for including insightful information in documents other than the resume.
      • Portfolio examples that illustrate how information is used in different ways for the same client.


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

Generating Cover Letter Income by Adding the Human Touch to Ignite an Interview

Friday, December 7, 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m., ET


Don’t believe the #FakeNews that cover letters are dead, go unread, or are a waste of time. While skipping the cover letter might save on time, the truth is that when the right cover letter is used, it can be vital to landing more quality interviews.

Join us in reviewing the results of a cover letter survey sent to 250+ hiring managers, top companies, and recruitment firms that proved the cover letter remains a powerful tool in landing interviews.

This 60-minute webinar will show you:

  • What hiring managers want to see, and what they don’t, in a cover letter.
  • How to add a human touch to the cover letter that speaks to what hiring teams care about – with a call to action that ignites the first interview.
  • Simple techniques that add the much-needed human voice to cover letters.
  • How to grow your income by selling more cover letter services at a higher price.


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