Frederick, MD (November 2016) – Freddie Rohner, an iHire Senior Writer, won a first place award in the 2016 Toast of the Resume Industry (TORI) Resume Writing Competition sponsored by Career Directors International (CDI). The TORIs, now in their 17th year, are an international competition in which contestants submit their best resume writing work in a specific category.
Rohner, a Certified Advanced Resume Writer and Certified Resume Specialist in Accounting and Finance as well as Training and Human Resources, won first place for his submission in the Best Hospitality Resume category. Rohner was a finalist for the Best Accounting Resume award in 2014 and the Best New Graduate Resume award in 2015.
“Freddie is an exceptional resume writer, and winning a first place TORI award is a testament to his outstanding talent, creativity, industry knowledge, and commitment to his craft,” stated Natalie Winzer, iHire’s Writing Supervisor. “This award is extremely well deserved, and we couldn’t be more proud of his achievement.”
“Winning first place was a wonderful surprise. After having been nominated the past few years, I knew I could compete with the other top writers, but I didn’t expect to finish first,” said Rohner. “I chose to enter the hospitality category because that’s always been one of my favorite industries to write resumes for. The subject matter is interesting, the clients always have great achievements to highlight, and the information they provide offers many opportunities for creative presentation. This is a huge honor for me, and I have to recognize and thank my coworkers for their encouragement and support.”
The prestigious TORI competition is held annually and invites writers to enter in a variety of fields. Nominees and winners are selected by two separate panels of judges (former award winners and/or individuals with elite master-level credentials) who review entries blind (no writer identification). This year’s additional categories included Accounting/Finance, Executive, Healthcare/Medical, Information Technology, International, New Graduate, and Sales.
Rohner, a St. Mary’s College of Maryland graduate with a background in copywriting and broadcasting, joined iHire’s resume writing team in 2010. In addition to specializing in accounting/finance and HR, he works frequently with job seekers in other industries including legal, construction, environmental, engineering, manufacturing, quality control, and logistics.
