Career After Kids - Angela Raspass, Working Women's Network
Women can boost their chances of success at a career after kids, and beat the economic climate
With many people losing their jobs and daily news of massive staff cuts, countless women suddenly find themselves faced with the prospect of needing to return to work feeling completely unprepared for the task.
Tessa Marshall of Health Services Group and Jennifer Beard of Polaris coaching are both eminently qualified to offer women who are looking at returning to work the answers to all those nagging questions that come up about insecurities, lack of ability and a lack of knowledge in a changed market.
As well as both being working mums with the practical experience of juggling work and family behind them, they both carry a long list of qualifications and business experience in career counselling, leadership building, team building, psychotherapy, business coaching and personal coaching.
They are bringing this wealth of expertise together in a 2 half-day workshop run by the Working Women’s network on 11th and 18th March at the Green Rooms Function Centre, Greengate Hotel, Killara.
“I am particularly pleased to be able to cover this highly relevant subject,” says Angela Raspass, co-founder of the Working Women’s Network. “We are very lucky to have Tessa and Jennifer on board for this workshop. They are both highly successful in their careers and have an enormous amount of knowledge and experience in helping people move forward in their own careers.”
The workshop, which runs over two consecutive weeks, will cover a wide range of topics such as rebuilding confidence, updating skills, writing a great resume, how to sell yourself to a prospective employer or client, building a working wardrobe and balancing your time between family and work.
“In the current economic climate, where many women are finding that they need to return to the workforce, perhaps sooner than expected, finding yourself a job that satisfies your needs and fits in with your family can be a daunting task,” says Tessa Marshall, co-convenor of the workshop. “To be successful you need to have confidence, something that many mums who have been out of the workforce for a while can be lacking in. Knowing where and how to make sure your skills are in line with current thinking, and knowing how to sell the skills you have goes a long way to rebuilding that confidence.”
This information-packed workshop event is taking place at 9.30am on Wednesday March 11th and Wednesday March 18th
at the Green Rooms Function Centre, Greengate Hotel, Killara. Visit www.workingwomensnetwork.com.au or call 8209 3741
