Learning from each other

On Friday, September 14, WEN hit a huge milestone. Our 250th class of women completed their 5-Week Intensive Training Program! Nine women completed the whole course and one was hired her second week into the program. Congratulations graduates!

We even heard back from one of our graduates today that she will be beginning a job as a Specimen Collector in a laboratory this Thursday. Two of the other women have interviews this week and we hope that the job offers keep pouring in.

Many of WEN's alums are active on our Facebook page, and several shared pieces of advice for this newest group of graduates. Their tips for the job searchers included:

  • Keep your relationships and networks fresh and relevant.
  • Go after what you want!
  • Keep your friendships alive! They can be a source of strength.
  • Take good care of yourself and your health. When you're strong you can take care of others.

We wish these women the best of luck and hope that in the coming years they will be able to pay it forward and help other women with their own advice and support.
