10 Jun Apres: Rethink, Reimagine, Reemerge
Today in the United States, there are more than three million women with college or advanced degrees trying to reenter the workforce. This can be a trying time, despite having legitimate and unavoidable reasons for being unable to work employers often are hesitant to employ these driven individuals due to their prolonged absence from their careers. Jennifer and Niccole, the co-founders of Apres saw this issue and decided to do something about it.
Apres is here to assist, by offering professional career coaching to help out-of-work women brush up on their skills, regain confidence, and better understand today’s workforce, so that they are more likely to be employed, but Apres does not stop there. The Apres online platform also puts you in touch with companies that have made a pledge to hire women returning to the workforce, as well as connecting you with others who understand what you’re going through—from watching inspiring success stories to sharing triumphs (and missteps), you’ll find like-minded people to walk the path.
Why we love Apres: This is a free to sign up service for all women, and a cost effective way for employers to recruit top talent for a variety of positions, especially compared to traditional recruiting options available; and a marketing platform that illustrates a company’s commitment to diversity.
