A workshop to help participants establish a career strategy, network, create a resume, and finesse an interview is scheduled for the February LifeForward workshop hosted by Zonta Club of SCV.
The free women’s workshop is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18, at Savia Community Center, 23780 Newhall Ave. The workshop will help participants pursue a job that maximizes their expertise and abilities.
Presenters will be Wendy Amara, an expert ADHA coach and Shift 52 executive coach; and Susan Reynolds, Career Development coordinator for the Wm. S. Hart High School District. Wendy is a highly accomplished speaker, trainer, executive coach and a contributing author to the best-selling book “The Art and Science of Success.” Susan is a former senior partner at New Market Career, a coaching and career strategy firm geared toward managerial, executive and professional careers.
The workshop will help participants identify and maximize their skill sets for a career and show them how to get to know people, exchanging information and goals. The hands-on portion of the workshop will help participants create a resume and market their skills, then develop interview techniques that sell their expertise, skills and benefits.
Free childcare is available through Single Mothers Outreach for women who register in advance at (661) 288-0117. Spanish translation also can be provided with advance request.
Previous workshops in the series have helped women select career options and pursue meaningful employment, work on goal setting and time management, deal with anger management, set budgets and file taxes, deal with drug and cyber bullying issues, and go after financial support after a divorce. Workshops are designed to help participants believe in their unlimited power and potential, build the skills necessary to succeed, and be the powerful women they are meant to be!
Zonta offers the free LifeForward workshops, usually on a monthly basis (although the series is dark during July and December), in collaboration with Single Mothers Outreach, Domestic Violence Center, Returning Women Veterans and Veterans’ Wives, and the Los Angeles County Department of Child & Family Services serving foster mothers. KHTS AM-1220 is a co-sponsor of the series with Zonta.
Workshops are organized by topics in which women express interest. A schedule of upcoming workshops is posted on www.scvzonta.org for women who are interested in a particular topic.
