Career Coaching Workshop to be held April 3, 2014
Directly preceding the OWLS, the Career Coaching Workshop is a full day designed to assist military officer and senior enlisted women in career transition after their military service, veteran officer women who are considering a career change or are interested in improving their career success.
The Career Workshop will include a variety of sessions designed to help transitioning women gain a better understanding of: career options and the skills needed to succeed in various industries, the art of conducting a successful interview and developing a personal brand, creating a winning resume and developing strategies for career success. Opportunities will also be available for attendees to network with top-caliber, military friendly companies specifically interested in military women for their integrity, work ethic and leadership skills.
Officers, senior enlisted and veteran women are highly encouraged to attend. Additional program information and registration is available at www.militaryowls.org.
