TOPIC: Addressing Resume Gaps
Dawn Rasmussen & Tom Powner, your Directors of Member Support, will be holding an open conversation on Addressing/Owning Resume Gaps. This is not a presentation, but a collaboration/discussion around this topic; we use GoToWebinar as a tool to keep the conversation on target.
Join us; when we put our minds together and share our ideas, we become stronger as an industry.

We all have those songs that bring us back to a moment in time. Other songs inspire or energize us.
To end the year on a high note (pun intended), the NRWA 4th Quarter Contest combines music and personal branding.
The “Personal Brand Song” contest will run now through December 31, 2021. As always, all entries win bragging rights, and the best submission wins a $25 Amazon gift card.
The contest guidelines are simple. Tell us what song represents your personal brand.
Provide the name of the song and artist and explain why you chose this song. Is it the words, the music, or what the song reminds you of or represents? One submission per member. Please choose a song that will be at least somewhat familiar and limit your “why” to 250 words.
Click here for more details and submit your entry in the final contest for 2021!

Let’s get innovative! LinkedIn calls the profile headline a HEADLINE for a reason. It’s meant to help the LinkedIn member sell themselves to viewers. But most people’s headlines are ineffective. That’s where we come in. Clients turn to us to write compelling profiles which includes creating a Headline that sells them to recruiters and employers.
Time to have some fun with that!The NRWA is running a “Headline Makeover” contest now through September 30, 2021 - DEADLINE EXTENDED to October 7, 2021. The contest guidelines are simple—submit a Before and After version of your Headline Makeover. As always, all entries win bragging rights, and the best Headline Makeover wins a $25 Amazon gift card.

We're excited to share the new NRWA logo with you!
Over the past few months, NRWA leaders have been working closely with our strategic marketing partners on a series of initiatives designed to advance the organization and fulfill our mission-driven commitment to increase the visibility of both the NRWA and the overall resume writing industry.
At the same time, we’ve been engaged in thoughtful reflection and discussion about how our organization has evolved over the past quarter of a century. Our updated brand identity – which encompasses the NRWA, NCRW, and NCOPE logos – was designed to reflect our growth and progression as an organization and complement our strategic efforts to meet the new challenges that lie ahead.
In the coming weeks and months, you will begin to see other new initiatives and approaches take shape toward these critical goals. We will seek your input and feedback as we move forward and we hope you’ll join us in forging ahead.
In the meantime, we are retiring the old NRWA logo so please be sure to update all materials – including websites, LinkedIn profiles, email signature blocks, brochures, business cards – using the new logo that shows that you are a proud member of the NRWA!

Thank you for your continued support of the NRWA. We look forward to seeing you at our Virtual Conference, September 20-23, on social media, or during any of our upcoming trainings and networking events.
