PRLog - Apr. 7, 2012 - ATLANTA -- The partnership between Walmart and Dress for success is changing lives one person at a time. “Dress for Success is helping women get the skills they need to get back into the workforce and those services are desperately needed right now,” said Mary Fox, Walmart’s senior vice president of global apparel sourcing. Dress for Success has more than 110 job training offices. The Going Places Network by Walmart helps women gain professional skills, accelerate their job search and build confidence.
Walmart and the Walmart Foundation are committed to funding opportunities that provide workforce training and development. June 25, 2012 Dress For Success, The Going Places Network by Walmart will be having a training seminar in Atlanta, GA. The topic of discussion is "Leveraging Social Media to Gain Employment."
Tara Williams says "That through the use of Social Media, employment seekers can "Brand" themselves online and get the attention of employers and recruiters". Using this method will set the applicant apart from all the other thousands of employment seekers that are using traditional means to find employment. In addition to branding themselves online they will learn how to use Social Media to automate getting valuable information the applicant needs to know about the jobs that are being advertised in the world of "Social Media", and use Social Media network connections to get interviews.
