Blazin’ Babes helps women power up with a killer resume, impressive interview and perfect elevator pitch
Blazin’ Babes, a women’s professional networking organization hosted a Career Development Workshop on Thursday, March 2, 2017 in Highland Park, IL at Trunk Club, a Nordstrom owned personal stylist service company once catering to only men, but now helping women dress to impress both inside and outside the workplace.
With two expert career coaches including Aileen Baxter of Joblink and Kay McBrearty of Waterville Partners , women of Blazin’ Babes and their friends learned about the importance of the elevator pitch, how to convert a chronological resume into a functional resume and how to tackle those tough interview questions among other key career development topics. “Many women have been working in the same role for close to 20 years. Some have stepped out of the workplace. Others are volunteering or working for non-profits. For all these women, it is critical that each and every woman is fully equipped with the right amo to clearly articulate their goals.”
Following the presentations, women learned about the key pieces of clothing necessary for any interview, work environment or personal day-to-day wear. In addition, women were overjoyed to hear about the complimentary services provided by Trunk Club including:
1) a customized profile highlighting one’s style, work or personal wardrobe needs
2) the time saving element where in lieu of you roaming frantically in and out of department stores, stylists select the right clothing based on your profile and needs and
3) free direct shipment of clothing to and from your home enabling you to try on, keep or send back your selected items.
What an amazing service! Trunk Club offers the best of both worlds whether you are seeking to find that perfect power suit for your interview or want to learn about key versatile pieces necessary for any wardrobe!
