CERTIFICATIONS, LICENSES, ASSOCIATIONS, EDUCATION,  PUBLICATIONS, COMMUNITY SERVICE...




CERTIFICATIONS: Our certifications assure you that a writer has general writing proficiency; has specialized career writing and career marketing expertise; has been tested and judged competent by a jury of internationally recognized career writing masters; and has sworn to deliver the highest quality career writing services in the most ethical and professional manner.  (See Roleta's article: Ten Steps to Choosing a Great, Certified Professional Resume Writer)


The Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) is granted by the Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaches (PARWCC), the first and oldest resume writing association. An applicant must be able to prove they have been employed as a professional writer for at least two years. After completing a workbook course covering English grammar, spelling, writing techniques, and business ethics, the applicant has three days to submit resume strategy, resume, and cover letter for a pre-determined, fictional client.  The examination is rated by a team of top PARW/CC resume writers who are at least CPRWs.
 
To provide our clients further assurance of our career coaching expertise, the following year, we added the Certified Employment Interview Professional (CEIP) certification to our professional portfolio. The CEIP designation is granted by PARWCC. The course was developed and is taught by Jay Block of The Jay Block Companies, Inc., through active participation at a multi-day, on-site seminar. Topics include client pre-interview strategies, beginning with a resume development technique that accurately identifies and assesses the client's strengths, then builds a winning value proposition that attracts top employers. The exam consists of a live, instructor-evaluated, video-taped interview session.

 





LICENSING: Wordbusters holds a current City of Fillmore (State of California) Business License, renewed yearly for the past 19 years.

CONTINUING EDUCATION: With 19 total years in business, we do not rest upon our laurels but constantly challenge ourselves with on-line courses and reading in career industry writing, career coaching, career marketing techniques, and cross-functional topics (IT, Graphic Arts, Logistics).

Our education also involves participation in Career Industry Forums on-line. We prove our expertise by publicly fielding difficult questions from colleagues and job seekers on Yahoo Group's CMA and PARWCC E-Lists and in LinkedIn Groups such as Protean Careers, Career Thought Leaders Consortium, Resume Experts, Society of Human Resources Management, and Federal Recruitment, Talent Management, and HR; and, finally, Google Groups such as CDI-Recruitment, CDI-ResumeExperts, and CDI-Chat.
