Webinars

FlexProfessionals offers workshops to support your job search efforts. To best support our candidates in Spring 2020, all workshops will be online in webinar format. We’re offering multiple times and dates for each workshop, and if you register and aren’t able to attend, you’ll receive a link to the recorded webinar to watch at your convenience.

Webinars are 60-90 minutes long and limited in size to maximize learning, group discussion, and information sharing. They are geared toward professionals who have taken a career break and those in career transition. All workshops are designed to provide practical job search resources and an opportunity for job seekers to meet and interact with each other as well as FlexProfessionals staff. (We will still try and do this online!)
