Why Join CDI

Career Directors International (CDI) is the ultimate networking and professional development resource and community for resume writers, career coaches, and career service professionals.

Designed by industry leaders committed to championing your success, CDI provides you with proven pathways to accelerate your skills, launch your career, and rapidly build or expand a rewarding six-figure+ business.

We know because we’ve been there, survived, and thrived!

CDI IS BUILT ON THE SUCCESS PRINCIPLES OF CAREER INDUSTRY SUPER-POWERS WHO WALK THE WALK

In 2004 when CDI President Laura DeCarlo turned PRWRA into the CDI we know today, she had already reached the pinnacle of which many career and resume professionals dream:

  • A six-figure income with a part-time schedule;
  • Working from home with low overhead;
  • Setting her own hours;
  • Picking and choosing her ideal clients;
  • Enjoying making money while she slept and played.

But it wasn’t easy going it alone. Unlike those who join CDI today, Laura had to piece it together from mentors, discussion lists, business books, and college courses. It took tons of trial and error, frustration, backward steps, over-working, and financial hills and valleys in those first few years until she set upon real and repeatable processes that worked effortlessly over and over again.

Founding CDI, Laura held the vision of the Career Superhero who saves the day. She recognized that resume writers and career coaches could have the tools to be just as successful as the job seekers whom they served. For a decade now she has brought together the industry’s leading super-powers and those seeking to take flight or fly higher.

Laura’s vision IS reality for CDI members who leverage the tremendous power of CDI’s resources, tools, and programs.

This is your opportunity to avoid becoming a statistic as yet another failed small business and seize a different future for yourself…all for far less than a dollar a day.
