2014 NRWA Conference Preview Call: Brenda Bernstein

Thinking about attending the NRWA Conference in Denver this September? I attended the NRWA Conference Preview call on Friday, May 9, and here are some of the takeaways!

Brenda Bernstein
Breakout Session Speaker – Wednesday, Sept. 17 (4:00 to 5:00 p.m.)
"Make Them Laugh, Make Them Cry: The Standout College Application Essay"

Brenda is the author of "How to Write a Killer LinkedIn Profile…And 18 Mistakes to Avoid." She is also the founder and senior editor at The Essay Expert. Brenda will be talking about how to create better applications in her presentation.

She says the two most important parts of the essay are the introduction and the last paragraph. Brenda says to never start an essay by talking about the weather.

Brenda's presentation will include practical exercises for attendees to work on.

"Everyone has a unique story to tell," Brenda says, and resume writers have to be willing to get "really personal" with their clients to uncover those stories.
