The journey to success for women and non-binary individuals can be fraught with obstacles, glass ceilings, and various challenges.
Your gift of time or money enables us to make a positive impact in their life and that of their family.
At Helping Women Now, we believe that all women and non-binary individuals should be able to define their potential on their own terms. We empower them with tools to overcome barriers that may impede their success.
“I find the volunteer work for Helping Women Now very inspiring. I love interacting with my clients and helping them tell their unique stories to find a job they find truly fulfilling.”
“My Career Support Specialist was super professional and friendly.”
She clarified what I wanted to accomplish at the beginning of the one-hour session and perfectly covered the material I needed support with. I was impressed and more than satisfied.
“At the end of the meeting I felt more confident and I received very useful suggestions.”
It was excellent. The Career Support Specialist did a great job. At the end of the meeting I felt more confident and I received very useful suggestions. I would like to thank you all for your great job. Looking for a job is challenging, and even more so at this time, it is very refreshing to receive so much support. I really appreciate it. Thank you.
“The sessions gave me a better understanding of what to do in order to find a job in Canada.”
I had 2 online sessions with a Career Support Specialist (Resume and Cover Letter review, and a Practice Interview). Both were very professional and personable volunteers. The sessions gave me a better understanding of what to do in order to find a job in Canada.
“The Career Support Specialist made me feel good about myself, where I am heading and how to set myself up for success.”
We touched on many subjects — trepidation with some of my interview answers, resume advice, the various additional supports available at my local affiliate. The Career Support Specialist made me feel good about myself, where I am heading and how to set myself up for success. I thoroughly enjoyed the advice, expertise, and knowledge she shared with me. I left the Zoom chat thankful for this service and thrilled to know that I can receive more assistance if needed. This encouragement is so helpful.
“It was an incredible resource, and an amazing and empowering experience.”
Thank you so much for the Career Support appointment. It was an incredible resource, and an amazing and empowering experience. It is greatly appreciated.
“My Career Support appointment was as helpful personally as it was technically.”
Resume and job search advice is always welcome (and was indeed helpful). The personal support during this period of isolation was also highly meaningful. I know we think of COVID-19 as a unique time, but job searches can be isolating regardless, and this support provided me with a real boost.
