Joanne took the time to break down the different entities and divisions that work together to support the members of CFMWS. This gave ENW participants an idea of current job openings in Marketing, Investments Advisory, Swim instructors, and a list of various other opportunities. The information session also highlighted vital tips for a successful interview. Joanne encouraged candidates to focus on the behaviour-based questions, and she expressed the importance of providing good scenario examples and how you have learned from them.

The ladies introduced their professional backgrounds and had great questions about the organizations hiring routine.
