“I cannot stress how positive of an experience winning a ROAR Award has been for me. I was honored to win such a prestigious award from the world's only nonprofit, member-driven, resume writers' organization. I debated on entering for a couple of years and decided last year I would go for it, and I’m so glad I did. The response from the membership and my peers was inspiring. Winning this award boosted my confidence and credibility and afforded me many opportunities to advance my career goals. I recently launched another business in my new home state of Colorado. Most importantly to me, this award is a testament to the commitment to best resume writing practices and training programs offered through the NRWA.”
