Master Certified Resume Strategist | Certified Employment Strategist >> Calgary’s Top Resume Writer

Wonderful news this month! I am thrilled to have conquered two esteemed industry credentials; the Certified Employment Strategist (CES) and Master Certified Resume Strategist (MCRS). Each certification demonstrates excellence, but the MCRS is a very distinct achievement.

Sharon Graham, Executive Director of Career Professionals of Canada, has shared the following statement on the value and standard of the prestigious MCRS:
 “Congratulations to Adrienne Tom for attaining Career Professionals of Canada’s Master Certified Resume Strategist credential. The MCRS is an exclusive designation reserved only for the foremost resume strategists in the nation. As one of only six professionals in Canada to achieve this top certification, Adrienne Tom has demonstrated mastery of the subject, distinguishing her as an elite resume writer with a record of applying advanced knowledge to strategically position clients for career success.”
In addition to the MCRS, I was also awarded the Certified Employment Strategist designation. The CES is the only Canadian standard for validating the expertise of career professionals providing employment, job search, and career transition advice.
Both of these designations set apart practitioners who offer resume writing and job search services and positions national career experts to support professionals with their unique job search and employment requirements.
Career Professionals of Canada offers several certifications that set the standard for excellence in resume, interview, employment, and career strategy; each a validation of competency and a definition of accountability in the industry.  CPC is a leading Canadian association of career practitioners, a social enterprise, with a mandate to enable Canadians to achieve their career and business goals.  CPC promotes quality, ethics, and expertise within the field of career development.
Sharon Graham’s recent article What’s Up on the Canadian Career Certification Front? articulates recent movements in Canadian career certifications, stressing the value of and importance of CPC’s regulated credentialing program that “recognizes all qualified and competent practitioners”.
