About the TORI Award

Each year, CDI hosts the resume writing industry's most prestigious Toast of the Resume Industry (TORI) award competition to find the best-of-the-best professional resumes written for different categories. The competition is judged by certified and award-winning resume writers to identify the top nominees in each category. Since 2004, I have led the industry with nominations and awards.

CDI offers a distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award to any career or resume professional who attains excellence through industry longevity, contribution, and lifelong learning. Sharon Williams received the Career Directors International Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013. Few individuals have achieved this distinction.

CDI's President Laura DeCarlo, proudly states, "While winning a TORI Award represents the pinnacle of resume writing expertise within the industry, nomination for a TORI is one of the most prestigious honors a resume writer can achieve. Being recognized as "one of the best" by your peers is an accolade that very few get to savor. We are proud to introduce the TORI Awards to the resume writing and careers industry because it highlights the work of members in our industry that so often get overlooked."

 

Career Directors International is raising the bar and setting new standards for resume writers and career coaches. With 500+ members, the organization provides continuing education, testing, and coaching for professional resume writers and career coaches worldwide.

CDI embarked on a unique competition in 2008 to find the World’s Best Resume Writers!

The competition was open to any English-writing individual in the world who wanted to try his/her hand at professional resume writing. The competition was standardized by providing all candidates the same notes and files. Two separate competitions were held with industry professional judges and the general public.

Sharon Williams holds the first-ever "World's Best Resume Writer" Award - Professional Vote.

About CDI

About CPRW

The Professional Association of Resume Writers & Career Coaches was founded in January of 1990. Prior to that time, there had been no association for career professionals to exchange information, enhance their skills, or demonstrate their commitment to providing professional services to the general public. Today, those who display the association's logo affirm their dedication to excellence in meeting client career goals. In addition, many members then choose to seek certification to further affirm their expertise as career professional.
