Helping women recently unemployed

The Women's Employment Network now offers a way for women who have recently become unemployed to stay up-beat and engaged as they seek to transition into new careers and jobs.

Help sponsor a program that gives women a supportive environment that helps them remain focused and motivated. The women in Wednesday's Women learn new ways to market themselves, network in the community and with their peers. Wednesday's Women helps women to remain confident and relevant in today’s marketplace.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The program meets on the first and third Wednesday of each month. The last session on September 15, 2010 was facilitated by Kelly Pruneau a contracter for WENf.

The focus for this session: Referrals are the Key: It's All About Who You Know

Did you know that more than 85% of all positions are landed from referrals? While the normal rule of "six degrees of separation" applies to many cities - it's really only "three degrees of separation" for Kansas City. Join this lively discussion of "Give and Get" - who do you know and better yet, who do you WANT to know?
