After months of rigorous training and testing, the AIU Online Career Services department achieved a major milestone when all of its Career Coaches became Certified Professional Resume Writers (CPRW). This certification affirms the quality of resume services provided by the department and underscores the value the team can provide to students and alumni.

The CPRW certification is provided by the Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaches, one of the foremost associations for career professionals. To earn this designation, the career coaches were required to pass a four-section exam that measured their industry knowledge; tested their grammar, spelling, punctuation and proofreading; posed several essay questions to measure strategic thinking; and required them to create a resume and cover letter based on background information for a hypothetical client.
