From noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 24, the Women’s Resource Center (WRC) of Sarasota County will present a webinar with the theme Unlock Your Career Potential: How to Land a Job Fast, which has been designed “to equip participants with essential strategies to accelerate job searches and secure meaningful employment,” the nonprofit has announced.

The speaker will be Hannah McGowan, “a professional trainer and coach who provides custom talent development solutions to individuals facing engagement, retention, and productivity challenges,” a news release explains. The session will be part of WRC’s Career Connections program, which “links women to quality jobs and funded training programs,” the release adds.

The Jan. 24 program is free, the release points out, but participants are asked to register at www.mywrc.org/LandJob.

During the Jan. 24 program, “participants will learn effective techniques to quickly navigate and leverage professional connections for job opportunities; uncover tips and tricks to optimize resume submissions; and discover valuable community job placement resources and gain insights into leveraging them effectively for a swift job search,” the release notes.

McGowan started her career at a health care consulting firm, handling the hiring of new employees and their ongoing skills development, along with assisting them on career paths in the sales department, the release adds. She then became a licensed school counselor after earning both a Master of Education and a Certificate of Advanced Studies from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, the release says. After several of years of working in schools and nonprofits as a counselor and program director, the release continues, McGowan started her own business, Hannah McGowan Coaching LLC.

“There are so many approaches to finding a job, and we are excited for Hannah to share her knowledge to help simplify a process that can feel overwhelming,” Ashley Brown, president and CEO of the Women’s Resource Center, said in the release.
