A career expo geared to women at the Navy Pier on October 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 pm.
This is our 11th season in Chicago . Our website is http://www.womenforhire.com.
As part of the day, we are introducing a new service for job seekers called Perfect Pitch – a chance for them to run their so-called 30-second elevator pitch by someone who has heard these things many times before and can tell whether they’re any good or not. We’re doing it because recruiters tell us that job candidates often do a lousy job of concisely explaining who they are, what they want and why they would be of any use to a potential employer.
We draw everyone from smart college seniors and recent grads to women returning to work after having kids to women thinking about second careers.
