“CPC certifications have advanced my professional skills and created increased interest from prospective clients.”

Adrienne Tom, Career Impressions and CareerPreneur Partners



“My search for professional development opportunities was challenging. There was not much Canadian content available on how to write a better resume for clients with barriers. That is, until I stumbled upon CPC. Recognizing the value that my membership in CPC could have for my clients, I eagerly asked the owner of the education center I was working for to pay for my membership into the organization. When my request was declined, I decided to pay for my own CPC membership, and applied for my Certified Resume Strategist (CRS) designation at the same time. Joining CPC was my first step in what has become the most amazing career journey!

After completing the CRS, I was excited to apply new-found resume writing skills and best practices in my work with clients. What started as just a way to help my clients succeed in their careers ended up taking me down a road I never anticipated. I noticed that every time I sat down with a client to help guide the client in the resume writing process, I felt alive. I quickly realized that resume writing, and the joy of helping people find their strength and passion through the written word, invigorated me.”
