A Helping Hand for Women in Career Transition

A Helping Hand for Women in Career Transition

Have you ever realized how a job search is like an Easter egg hunt? You search and search, hoping to find the perfect one before the other hunters. And no matter how hard you try on your own, sometimes you just need a helping hand to get the egg that’s slightly out of reach. At Pennsylvania Women Work, we’re that helping hand. Our programs are designed to empower women in career transition through job readiness, emotional growth, education, training and employment. And we offer all of our services for FREE. With your help, we can keep extending our hand to women in need and help them prepare for their job search and succeed.

TUESDAY, MAY 6 is The Pittsburgh Foundation’s annual Day of Giving. A portion of all gifts (between $25 and $1000) made from 6:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. through PittsburghGives.org will be matched by The Foundation.

We ask that you remember Pennsylvania Women Work this May 6 and assist us in helping Pennsylvania women snatch up that perfect “egg.”
