13 Women Found Jobs in November!

We are proud to report, on average, 13 women each month, thanks to Women's Employment Network's Employment Preparation & Career Transition Training program, find jobs and report employment! We are very proud of all of our women/graduates!

On a personal note, just the other day, our staff of 6 was holding our weekly meeting, when we heard a knock on the door. We opened the door and saw a WEN client with a huge smile, ear to ear, standing there, looking like she was about to burst with pride. She had just heard the news that she had been hired for a job that she had been hoping for. She said the first thing she wanted to do when she heard the news was to come directly to WEN's offices to let us all know the big news. We all stood up and gave her big hugs and congratulations. She said she never could have done this without our program, our support and our friendship.

After she left, we continued our meeting, but there was a certain something different in the air. We were reminded in the most wonderful of ways that what we do, day-in and day-out, helps real women in very direct ways make real differences in their lives.
