More Than 40 Women Join Patch 100 to Find Jobs

Patch and Danville career advancement company What's for Work are teaming up for 100 days to help East Bay women return to the workforce.

More than 40 East Bay women so far have signed up to the Patch 100, a project in partnership with Danville company What's For Work? that aims to help prepare women to return to the workforce.

We still have plenty of spaces available. Are you currently looking for work or thinking about returning to the workforce soon? Are you concerned about:

  • Where you fit back into the job market;
  • Whether your skills are still relevant;
  • Translating your life skills and experience into the workplace; or
  • Networking?

If so consider joining What's For Work? using the Patch100 promotional code to receive the following additional benefits:

What's For Work?, in partnership with Patch, will help each woman to:

  • Expand their networking reach.
  • Create a winning resume.
  • Translate their life skills and experience.
  • Establish their personal brand via blogs and social media.
  • Identify and create a target list of 20 prospective employers.
  • Identify 20 decision makers.
  • Have their story told on Patch and What’s for Work? websites via articles, videos, photos and blogs.
  • Three custom workshops: Resume Preparation: Interview with Confidence; Personal Branding via Social media.
  • Opportunity to attend a Patch-What’s for Work? networking event  sponsored by local companies.

What's For Work? is a community-based website founded by Teri Hockett and Dennis Thompson. It's dedicated to helping women find the work they love.

We've also had a great response from local businesses who want to hire What's for Work clients, and Patch will work with local companies through this project as well to help them better market themselves in their communities using Patch.

If you're a company with a job opening, you can always post it on the Patch jobs page. To sign up to hire employees from What's for Work (for a fee), visit their website.
