The two-day Build Your Career Seminar for women held from 10th to 11th June 2015 with women from diverse educational and professional backgrounds in attendance.
The seminar offered intense and informative lessons taught by seasoned professionals in the Human Resources Management field who are also members of the Board of Trustees of Women of Essence Foundation.
The first day of the seminar focused on topics that would help participants pick a career that suits their personality, skills, potentials and interests. Participants also gained invaluable knowledge about planning their careers and becoming more employable. There was simulation of interview sessions by participants and the guest facilitator and Vice President of WOMEF Mrs. Osikoya, as well as an engaging question and answer session.
The second and last day of the seminar focused on topics essential for productivity and excellence on a job. The guest facilitator, also Human Resources expert and board member of WOMEF Mrs. Adio, took the participants on an interactive journey on Good Workplace Attitude and Work Life Balance. Before her session she gave constructive criticisms on participants’ dream board presentations, an exercise that required a thorough use of lessons taught about mission and vision in previous sessions.
