►Each client presentation had to include: #Statement of client needs and objectives, #Summary of resume writing strategy and rationale, #Client’s original resume (and cover letter, if one was provided to me), #Final resume and cover letter that I wrote.
--► The MRW certification must be renewed every 2 years.
