CDI's Career Innovator Award

It is an honor to see the levels of quality and innovation that our members aspire to; we’re proud to have leaders of this caliber affiliated with our association.

The global association of resume writers and career coaches, Career Directors International (CDI), encourages industry professionals to grow, learn, and innovate in order to continually be of unique value to the job seekers they serve. Four years ago the Career Innovator Awards were launched with that purpose in mind – to encourage and celebrate excellence and innovation.

Entries have been seen in a variety of areas, such as career management and job search apps, social resume tools, university-development dual career programs, social search strategy books, employment information and job seeker support websites, job search how-to programs, and much more.

For 2012, former winners were once again asked to return as judges in helping to select the winners from the entries received this year. The competition was tremendous and resulted in a tie that led to six total winners (vs. the five typically selected).
