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
- 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.
