"Writing Resumes for Clients in Religious Occupations" with Ginger Korljan, NCRW, CCMC
Wednesday, March 6, 2013 • 1 p.m. Eastern
Competition for those pursuing religious professions has become extremely stiff today. Churches and faith-based organizations are receiving record numbers of applications for few available positions. Sadly, economic downturns, low church attendance, and scandals are displacing clerics at an alarming rate, and often these displaced workers are discouraged and unsure how to translate their experience to the religious or secular world. Although religious professionals are often charismatic public speakers, they may feel uncomfortable sharing "accomplishments" that could be interpreted as bragging. These professionals need résumé writers who can help them stand out personally, professionally, and theologically among the myriad of candidates. By understanding what is important, asking probing questions, and listening carefully to religious language and "buzzwords," you can write resumes in your client's voice and according to his or her individual beliefs.
The cost for the training is $19.99 for NRWA members and $29.99 for non-members. To register, visit:
