Direct quote from TORI Resume Industry Award Judge

“2011, it seems, has attracted a particularly high calibre of the applicant,” One of the TORI judges has said, “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.”

It goes without saying, therefore, that it is a huge honour to be nominated but also a testament to the exceptional attention to detail that Victoria applies to her CV writing work. Winner announcements will take place in October.
