TransWork Hosts an Inaugural Job Prep Workshop
TransWork hosted an interactive job preparedness workshop on April 24, 2018 at the William Way Community Center as one of our first formal participant events. This free, three-hour program was intended to support folks of trans experience with all levels of job readiness and career paths, who are seeking employment or advancement in their careers.
Participants engaged in a series of training sessions over three hours, covering topics around:
- Resume Prep
- Interview Skills
- Mock interview practice
- Knowing your workplace rights
- Creating safer spaces
- Professional etiquette
Following the workshop sessions, participants were invited to stay for a networking reception with organizations who are members of the IBA, Philadelphia’s LGBT Chamber of Commerce. They had an opportunity to connect with trans business owners and other LGBTQ & allied professionals to start building their professional networks.
TransWork plans to host these sessions on a regular basis to help incoming participants prepare for job fairs and interviews.
