Graduates of the Women Empowered Through Employment Series or W.E.T.E.S received an interview outfit, resume assistance, job search and networking tools, and family budgeting guidance.  Participants also completed a mock interview with participating employers, including Lee Health and Chico’s FAS, Inc.  Past participating businesses include Hertz, Arthrex, and Walmart. W.E.T.E.S. is in its third year, and for the first time, the session was hosted at Chico’s Headquarters on Metro Parkway.   WINK News anchor Amanda Hall served as a career mentor or “coach” for the program.
