Share Article

As the only nonprofit, member-driven professional association for professional resume writers, The National Resume Writers’ Association (NRWA) is celebrating its 15th anniversary. To help commemorate this milestone, aspiring and veteran resume writers are invited to “Learn—Network—Play” at the 3-day conference in historic Charleston, South Carolina.

From September 19th through September 22nd, online and storefront entrepreneurs, university and college service providers, military transition personnel, and human resource representatives are gathering to learn and share best resume-writing practices. Members will be learning expert resume-writing and job-search strategies for helping job seekers through employment transitions and techniques to help job hunters overcome career-development apprehensions. Resume writers and job-search coaches will be networking with other career experts, garnering wisdom, sharing guidance, and cultivating concentrated alliances. In addition, they’ll play while discovering the hidden charms of Charleston.

As The NRWA conference reception kicks off, the beautiful Hat Ladies of Charleston will greet attendees with a variety of hats on loan to showcase personalities and to electrify the evening. Top Hat Archie Burkel will briefly address the group with advice on how to properly wear a hat and present a philosophy of life everyone can hang his/her symbolic hat upon!

During the reception, a charity "bingo" will be held to benefit Mom's Closet—a resource center started with a $100 bill and a challenge for Sheila Day, wife of Pat Day, winner of more than 8,000 races including the Kentucky Derby. The center partners with other resources, businesses, and community agencies to develop the potential of single mothers seeking an education. Sheila and Pat work together to create awareness and to fundraise for the continued success of this endeavor. The NRWA proceeds will go toward opening a "career resource center" that will create a long-lasting impact not only for the single moms before and after graduation but also for the community.

There is so much to learn and enjoy! Listen to our conference preview!

However, the learning does not stop in Charleston! Following the conference, The NRWA will continue its mission of increasing the visibility of the resume-writing industry, encouraging ethical practices, promoting excellence, and raising industry standards through peer mentoring and training including online education. Member e-list, Facebook page, Twitter, and LinkedIn discussions will provide a gateway for seminars, robust website resources, and volunteer opportunities nationally. Knowledgeable colleagues are easily accessible by a quick email or phone call—the NRWA works hard to ensure that professional resume writers provide only the timeliest information to clients at all levels, from customer service representatives to the most eloquent CFO at Fortune 500 companies.

The NRWA was founded in 1996 by 11 professional resume writers. Today, membership is more than 400 and continues to grow monthly.
