Back to Work
Most working women, at some point, face the dilemma of choosing to continue their job/career that they have worked so hard for and their family, who they care the most about. After putting their family needs first, these women, when later find the time to rejoin the workforce, are often met with challenges after taking a career break.
Ed-Watch wants to provide this one-time opportunity to all such women and others who may have stayed away from work for any reasons, to come back even more convincingly and grab a job or start their own business.
The three-day event is designed to offer short, skill-based training programs for job candidates to stand out among others, provide them with the training on contemporary skills, prepare them for taking suitable roles, and undermine the struggles one must face after a career gap.
These on line programs offer flexibility to full time moms, working women, and those under stressful circumstances to attend the sessions from the comfort of their homes at their preferred time.
