As part of the Empowering Mums (EM) project, the YWCA is piloting standalone modules as outreach to new beneficiary mums who cannot commit to the full 10-week project. The first will be a one-time Resume and Interview Skills Clinic featuring a basic resume and interview skills workshop, Human Resources and Recruitment panel, and individual consultation by our corporate volunteers for personal resume and interview roleplay.

The aim of the Resume and Interview Skills Clinic is to help every mum who attends be guaranteed to walk away from the event with a professional resume and greater interview preparedness. The details for the event are:
