With this mission, the Certified Resume Specialist (CRS+X) body of credentials was introduced.

Now, when a job seeker is battling overwhelm in identifying the best professional to help, they need look no further than a certified professional who is designated a specialist in their profession.”

DeCarlo says, “This is a unique spin because career change isn’t limited to a certain profession, but it is its very own niche and one of the most difficult skillsets a resume writer will master. Whenever someone needs to shift gears on their resume, a challenging process presents – how to make the candidate’s prior experience shine for a new target with new responsibilities, industry keywords, and language. On the surface it might seem easy, but it is no different than a company performing a complete top-to-bottom rebranding of their products and packaging; it requires expert guidance.”
