Program Update: How to Jumpstart Your Career During the Coronavirus Pandemic
With all of the changes that are taking place due to the Coronavirus, the Financial Women’s Association (FWA) and our corporate sponsors, made the difficult decision to postpone our popular Back2Business April workshop. In its fourth year, we remain committed to this initiative, which helps individuals relaunch their careers after taking a career break.
The FWA wants to stay in touch during this difficult time and offer you or someone you know career resources and virtual networking opportunities. Here are a few ways for you to stay in touch:
- LinkedIn: Follow us on LinkedIn, with over 6,000 in our network, begin interacting and conversing with our members and supporters at https://www.linkedin.com/company/financial-women's-association/
- FWA Website: Check out our website at www.fwa.org for resources, including virtual webinars and podcasts on managing your career through these rapidly changing times
- Networking: It’s harder to network when you have to socially distance, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Want to make new business contacts? Consider joining the FWA today, volunteer for a committee and meet accomplished new people virtually!
We look forward to continuing the career conversation with you and hope you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy during these uncertain times.
