SAN JOSE, Calif. - Oct. 8, 2019 - PRLog -- [Santa Clara, CA]: Women Back to Work (WBW) recently announced a new partnership with the City of San Jose, Mayor Sam Liccardo's office and the San Jose Public Library. This initiative helps us support women who took a career pause and are now looking to return to the workforce.

"We are extremely excited about this partnership," said Sonu Ratra, Founder of WBW. "The City of San Jose and Silicon Valley are facing a talent crunch and a serious shortage of skilled labor. Our library campaign helps us reach different socio-economic populations in the city so that our corporate partners have access to professional talent and can also source Returners from various disadvantaged demographics."

WBW will be conducting workshops across various branches of the SJPL system focused on helping Returners format their resumes, sharpen their interview skills, utilize social media, and a variety of other job search necessities.

"By hosting the Women Back to Work program at the San José Public Library, it helps the library connect participants to career related and job skills building resources," said Michelle Ornat, Deputy Director of Public Services at SJPL. "The Library's business and career center, SJPL Works, will also be hosting a program along with work2future, as part of the WBW series."

"The City of San Jose is undergoing a massive expansion," said Monique Melchor who is the Division Manager at the Office of Economic Development/work2future. "This partnership is crucial as it ties into our goals of workforce and economic development for the region. The Mayor's vision for San Jose is a future laden with opportunities for residents from every corner of the city."

About Women Back to Work (WBW): The purpose of Women Back to Work is to create systemic pathways to facilitate the reentry of women into the workforce while enabling companies to exceed diversity goals and find exceptional talent.

WBW's systematic approach includes skills assessment, job search training, and mentoring that helps women returnees ensure they are prepared and set up for success in their search for employment and beyond.
