2011 Competition Nominees & Winners

Each year, CDI hosts the resume writing industry's most prestigious Toast of the Resume Industry (TORI) resume writing competition.

This year it was evident how much having the TORI competition has helped raise the bar on professional resume writing for our industry. The entries demonstrated outstanding quality, creativity, and writing skills. Literally, we feel that the resumes that were entered this year which did not attain nomination were of the quality that they could easily have been winners last year. It was exceedingly impressive!

Thus, congratulations are due to all the resume writers who entered this year!

Winner announcements, along with conveyance of medals and certificates, will take place at CDI's award ceremony at our 2011 Career Empowerment Summit this October.
