Board & Committee Service (ADMIN USE)

Board Bio
Now in her 11th year of service for the National Résumé Writers’ Association and 20th year of résumé writing practice, Mary Jo King is a Nationally Certified Résumé Writer (NCRW) and Nationally Certified Online Profile Expert (NCOPE) with more than 40 years of writing experience for individuals and businesses. She served as NRWA President in 2018 and has chaired the Advisory Board since 2019. Previous roles include Secretary, Member Representative, and varied committee service.

After an early career with a national résumé writing company, Mary Jo consulted with businesses and nonprofit organizations to develop marketing solutions and media campaigns. In 2010, she left corporate life to open Alliance Résumé and Writing Service, where she creates résumés, LinkedIn profiles, and other marketing tools for careers and small businesses. She joined the NRWA in 2011 to get the best training available to update her résumé writing skills.

Says Mary Jo, “The NRWA changed my life—it made me a better writer and connected me with the most welcoming and generous group of career services professionals that can be found anywhere. Because we are a nonprofit trade association, all NRWA resources are invested in member growth and support. It shows. There is no better place to find ethical, well-trained writers and coaches.”
