Testimonials

‘’I was lucky enough to be selected by the W2W partnership program. I really appreciate the support Axelle Brand provided me at a difficult time for me. She overcame the same challenges and succeeded. She gave me hope. After each of our meeting I felt filled with energy all over again and confident that I will find the right opportunity.

The biggest challenge for me was to get my resume read by the right people, people who are able to understand my path and ready to meet me. The keys are good preparation and resilience.

After 6 months of intensive job search, I am now Program Manager at Motorola Mobility (part of Google Group). My position at Motorola perfectly fit into my career plan.”

Murielle C. (Mentee)

 

"The W4W mentoring program provided me very helpful insight of the US job research market, and for my job search strategy. During those months I learned with my mentor how to perform relevant networking, improve my resume and practice my "Elevator Pitch". The program also gave me the opportunities to introduce myself to inspiring women in Chicago. I want to thank you all for this great support and program."

Nathalie B.C. (Mentee)

 

"I totally enjoyed this first opportunity to contribute to the W4W Committee. I find that a rewarding aspect of this process is when such a synergy develops between mentee and mentor and we can then watch the mentee make great strides toward their goals!"

Bo Golovan (Mentor)
