(Sarasota-Manatee) While the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted employment across multiple industries, many local companies are still hiring. The Women’s Resource Center (WRC) is helping individuals connect to these in-demand occupations through “Who is Hiring?” a free, one-hour webinar on May 20, noon-1 p.m. WRC is hosting this special information session as part of its popular “Career Connections” monthly program which focuses on helping women explore quality job openings and funded training programs in the area. The webinar, moderated by Lori Gentile, director of client services, will offer information about hiring organizations, open positions, and average wages, and explain ways that WRC can assist individuals with their job search process, resume development and interview preparation through one-on-one Career Coaching services. To register, go to mywrc.org/CareerConnections or call (941) 256-9721. Free individual Career Coaching, via phone or computer video conferencing, is also available.
“WRC continues to serve a critical role in the community as a connector to help women find the jobs, services, education and other resources they need during transitional and disruptive times such as this current crisis,” explains WRC CEO Ashley Brown.
WRC also has created a dedicated COVID-19 resource page on its website (https://www.mywrc.org ) to provide up-to-date information on variety of topics, including employment. Webinar participants will be shown how to navigate the site to find direct links to career pages of organizations that are hiring during the pandemic, as well as other information to assist them in accessing essential resources.
