  • Maximizing your professional network

Luz Y. Oyola, an attendee at the last Wahine Working Smart said, “I absolutely LOVED the Working Smart Forum workshop and the timing was perfect! I attended the workshop because I was in the middle of looking for a job, had attended a few interviews, and felt that I needed salary negotiation skills. The workshop definitely gave me all the skills needed and more… Thanks to the skills learned, the tools given, the confidence boost, and the great conversations with many during our networking sections, I was able to negotiate a really good salary during the job offer. I have to admit that if I had not gone to this workshop, I probably would have accepted a job for 20% less than what I negotiated. It’s important that you do the research, use the tools given, and believe in it your worth. You got this!”

This event will include morning refreshments and a complimentary lunch.

Space is limited — RSVP now!
