Connectalent, a Westport-founded firm that seeks to connect skilled employees with employers who value work/life balance, in partnership with Indeed, the worldwide employment website for job listings, will host "Returning to Work with Confidence: Workshop and Networking Event" for mothers returning to work after COVID. The event will feature members of Women @ Indeed (internal resource group from Indeed.com) as well as members of Connectalent. During the workshop, participants will learn how to best position themselves when applying to jobs through Indeed and will explore the resources available through Indeed to simplify their job search. Connectalent will advise participants on how to fill any gaps in their resumes and provide helpful interviewing and networking tips.
"Returning to Work with Confidence" will also give participants ample time to network with other professionals from similar and different backgrounds and industries. "Networking is one of the most powerful tools in a prospective job search, especially after taking a hiatus from the workforce," explains Runa Knapp, one of two Westport moms, who founded Connectalent (along with sister Westport mom, Jasmine Silver). "We are excited to partner with Indeed to provide Fairfield County moms this opportunity to connect and widen their professional network." Light refreshments and cocktails will be served.
Caroline Coffey, Director of Sales & lead of Women @ Indeed says, "Our mission at Indeed is to help people get jobs and we love any chance to help our local community. Women and caretakers have been disproportionately affected by unemployment during COVID, so we are extremely excited to partner with Connectalent on this event."
Connectalent's platform helps companies achieve diversity, inclusion, and greater efficiency in the workplace and empowers local professionals to seek modern opportunities.
