Career Directors International (CDI) is pleased to announce the nominees of the 2010 TORI Awards, also known as the Toast of the Résumé Industry. Local writer, Michelle A. Riklan and owner of Riklan Resources, LLC. has been nominated in the category of “Best Creative Résumé” for the top award.
CDI’s President Laura DeCarlo, proudly states, “While winning a TORI Award represents the pinnacle of résumé writing expertise within the industry, nomination for a TORI is one of the most prestigious honors a résumé writer can achieve. Being recognized as "one of the best" by your peers is an accolade that very few get to savor. We are proud to introduce the TORI Awards to the résumé writing and careers industry, because it highlights the work of members in our industry that so often get overlooked.”
Professional résumé writers submitted entries for the TORI Awards in June, and a panel of the industry’s top writers were selected to judge the submissions. Up to seven entries have been nominated in each category, with CDI Officers making the final ruling later this month. The winning résumés and cover letters will be announced on October 16th in San Diego during CDI’s annual conference.
Career Directors International is raising the bar and setting new standards for résumé writers and career coaches worldwide. With more than 400 members, the organization provides continuing education, testing, and coaching for professional résumé writers and career coaches.
