Melbourne, Florida (PRWEB) October 31, 2012

Once again the ground-breaking Global Career Empowerment Summit presented annually by Career Directors International (CDI) has come to an end. During this master's-level program, top resume writers, career coaches, career counselors, and recruiters convened from locations worldwide to gain insight on the newest programs, tools, strategies, and processes to lead their job-seeking clients to successful employment and career satisfaction.

CDI President Laura DeCarlo states, “The CDI Summit is a true milestone in the careers and resume industry because of its unique approach to planning programs that are focused on forecasting emerging trends and targeting the deepest challenges that practitioners face. The goal of the annual Summit is quite simply to position practitioners to break through both known and unknown barriers presented by clients as well as an ever-changing digital landscape for job search, career management, and entrepreneurial business success.” The feedback from attendees at the 2012 program is that CDI has once again exceeded those expectations with comments including:

“What differentiates career industry innovators? A deep hunger for learning and change. The Career Directors International conference fed us!” (as posted on Twitter) – Deb Dib, Executive Power Brand

“CDI offers crazy insane value. You are the Steve Jobs of career and resume associations. You could take it down seven notches and still be superior.” – Bryan Lubic, San Diego State University

“CDI represent the strongest, the most innovative, and the most enduring professional presence in the Resume Writing and Career Coaching universe.” – Grant Cooper, CareerPro of New Orleans / Strategic Resumes

To share the wealth from this powerful Summit program, CDI has created a free resource page which offers written tips from each of the speaker sessions as well as 22 short videos (50 seconds to 4 minutes). Programs at the Summit, which are included in the tips, are:
