Certified Advanced Resume Writer (CARW) was established by Career Directors International (CDI) as the gold standard of resume writing certifications for those professionals committed to working at a tier above their peers. The CARW is CDI's standard and first level of certification.
Earning the Certified Advanced Resume Writer (CARW) credential is the best way to distinguish one's qualifications from the average resume writer. The candidate for the CARW recognizes the importance of demonstrating a high level of competency as a resume writer and is committed to working at a tier above all others in the industry.
How it works:
CDI membership is a prerequisite for registration. The CARW Certification must be renewed every two (2) years by earning 30 industry-related continuing education units (CEUs). This can be completed through a variety of activities such as: employment-related book reviews, career-related community service, completing related coursework or study, publishing resumes, and/or authoring articles / materials on resume writing. The renewal fee is $50.
