Description

Women have been in the workforce for centuries. From being expected to stay home to take care of children and perform household duties, to now serving in top positions in public and private-sector industries, the path to career success has not been easy. Self-confidence in women has historically lagged behind men, and other factors have historically impeded career advancement and success.

But, historical trends are just that — history.

You will learn:

  • How historical trends of women in the workplace have impacted career success of women.
  • Tips and tricks to stay organized, confident, and assertive during the job search.
  • Strategies to be unique and stand out while searching for jobs.
