WHW Smart & Sophisticated Day - March 2019
WHW celebrated the end of Women’s History Month by hosting Smart and Sophisticated Day, a full day of empowerment for job seekers in transition on Friday, March 29th. The morning started with breakfast and a fun and educational game, celebrating women who have made significant contributions in history. Then attendees participated in “7 Seconds to Impress,” an informative workshop on how to make a great first impression on perspective employers. With the assistance of community volunteers and volunteers from WOA (Women of AT&T), each job seeker had the chance to shop for the perfect interview outfit with all the accessories as well as a brand new foundation garment provided by Event Sponsor, Smart & Sexy. After a delicious lunch, a keynote presentation inspired Job Seekers to make the decision to be a C.O.R.E. employee (Capable, Organized, Reliable and Empowered). Attendees then had the opportunity to participate in three rounds of mock interviews with feedback on the type of first impression they gave, followed by a debrief in which each participant shared with the group something they learned and took away from the event. Everyone agreed that it was an impactful day and the perfect way to celebrate Women’s History Month! One Job Seeker wrote, “Thank you for the empowerment and positivity! Smart and Sophisticated Day has been an awesome experience. I am truly walking away with a smile because I feel empowered and more confident!”
