    Let’s get innovative!
    LinkedIn calls the profile headline a HEADLINE for a reason. It’s meant to help the LinkedIn member sell themselves to viewers. But most people’s headlines are ineffective. That’s where we come in. Clients turn to us to write compelling profiles which includes creating a Headline that sells them to recruiters and employers.

    Headline Makeover - Make Your Client's Profile a Standout - A compelling LinkedIn Healine can make the viewer click to open instead of scroll to the next profile. Show Us Your Skills.

    Time to have some fun with that!
    The NRWA is running a “Headline Makeover” contest now through September 30, 2021 - DEADLINE EXTENDED to October 7, 2021. The contest guidelines are simple—submit a Before and After version of your Headline Makeover. As always, all entries win bragging rights, and the best Headline Makeover wins a $25 Amazon gift card.

    We're excited to share the new NRWA logo with you!

    Over the past few months, NRWA leaders have been working closely with our strategic marketing partners on a series of initiatives designed to advance the organization and fulfill our mission-driven commitment to increase the visibility of both the NRWA and the overall resume writing industry.

    At the same time, we’ve been engaged in thoughtful reflection and discussion about how our organization has evolved over the past quarter of a century. Our updated brand identity – which encompasses the NRWA, NCRW, and NCOPE logos – was designed to reflect our growth and progression as an organization and complement our strategic efforts to meet the new challenges that lie ahead.

    In the coming weeks and months, you will begin to see other new initiatives and approaches take shape toward these critical goals. We will seek your input and feedback as we move forward and we hope you’ll join us in forging ahead.

    In the meantime, we are retiring the old NRWA logo so please be sure to update all materials – including websites, LinkedIn profiles, email signature blocks, brochures, business cards – using the new logo that shows that you are a proud member of the NRWA!

    Click here to find logo downloads in our Member Portal.

    Thank you for your continued support of the NRWA. We look forward to seeing you at our Virtual Conference, September 20-23, on social media, or during any of our upcoming trainings and networking events.

    If you want to expand your network and connect with other NRWA members, consider joining us for one of our upcoming Member Mixers! We held several of these speed networking sessions during our virtual conference and they were very well received, so our membership team decided to add some to our regular event schedule for 2021:

    These member-only sessions will be held via Zoom. Attendees will be randomly placed in a series of one-on-one breakout rooms, so you will have the opportunity to meet several members during the event. There is no fee, but please register in advance via the links above receive Zoom meeting details. You will have to log in as a member. Each session will be held from 5:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m., ET. You will notice on the event page each one has an optional theme.

    Our Member Mixers each have a theme—July's theme is National Cowboy Day. Celebrate by wearing your favorite western gear—hats, shirts, belts—or not! 

    Not interested in the theme? No problem. Participating is entirely optional, and topics of discussion won't be centered around the theme.

    NOTE: The August Mixer will be open to Nonmembers:

    NRWA Member "Create a Meme" Contest

    Let's get creative!

    If you’re on social media, you will likely see at least one meme a day. Probably more. Many brands across industries are attracting attention by hopping on the meme trend.

    Why not NRWA members?

    Many of us have already posted memes to educate and entertain jobseekers. A better way to stand out is to create our own.

    Good news, creating memes is a lot easier than creating videos.
