A TORI Award is recognised as the highest honour a CV writer can achieve in their field, and the winning entries are recognised as an industry “gold standard”.

Professional CV writers from all over the world were invited to submit their entries for this year’s awards in June, in accordance with a rigorous set of criteria. The 2013 judging panel consisted of a diverse range of independent CV consultants, recruitment experts, and HR directors from leading companies such as L’Oreal, Volkswagen, and Wal-Mart.
