Workshop Helps Women Re-Enter Work Force


Clovis News Journal
          The New Mexico Commission on the Status of Women is helping Clovis area homemakers head back into the work force.
        The commission's Displaced Homemakers office is offering a free workshop called Effective Work Search Skills.
        Lorraine Bantista, coordinator of the Displaced Homemakers Office, said the four-part workshop aimed at women will cover self-assessment, types of job search techniques, tapping into the hidden job market and preparing for the interview.
        Jan Bradburn, manager of the Curry County N.M. Workforce Connection office, said women in the Clovis area are looking at heading back to work.
        "Women are faced with heading back to work for a variety of reasons. Maybe their husband has been laid off because of the recession or they feel under-employed. Some don't feel equipped to enter the job market. This is a wonderful way to empower them," Bradburn said. "We know they have the skills, it's just a matter of putting them in the right format."
        The workshop is 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Dec. 10 at New Mexico Workforce Connections. To register, call Bantista at 1-800-432-9168 or www.womenscommission.state.nm.us.
