 Job Readiness Workshop

  • Ready for Work is a free, six-week job readiness program for unemployed or underemployed women who are motivated and seeking guidance to enter the workforce. As a participant, you will receive guidance from career specialists in soft skills, goal setting, job search strategies, personal finance, resumes and interviews.
  • Sessions meet for two hours, once a week for six consecutive weeks. Participants are expected to attend every session. Registration is required.
  • While we cannot guarantee immediate employment upon graduation, we will teach you skills that will help you in the long-term employment process.
  • Upon completion of the program, participants will receive complimentary membership at the Center for Women for one year, providing you access to our programs and connecting you to a large network of members in the Charleston area.

Oct Open Graduation (1)


“Appreciate the opportunity to re-discover myself, my skills, and my goals. Amazing!” – Ready for Work Graduate

“This Ready for Work program has helped me immensely in feeling support from other women – I don’t feel so alone anymore.”– Ready for Work Graduate

“Whether the women in the groups are highly educated or high school graduates, hoping to change careers, returning to the workforce or are “in transition” for any reason, I’ve watched them gain confidence in themselves and their skills over the series of sessions while becoming very supportive of one another. It’s really remarkable to watch.” – Ready for Work Volunteer
